This bread is very tasty, and smells amazing when baking. It is also super moist cause of the pears. Don't use pears that are too large, the bread will end up to soggy. I love a big slab toasted with butter, with a big cup of tea.
1 3/4 cup self raising flour
1/4 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 pears peeled and pureed
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon almond essence
1/4 cup milk
70 grams butter
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
50 grams pistachios chopped roughly
2 tablespoons plain oats for topping
Preheat the oven to 170C. Sift the flours, cinnamon and baking powder into a large bowl, then stir in the sugar.
In another medium size bowl, add the rest of the ingredients, leaving out the oats and mix together with a spatula.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and give it a good stir. Pour into a lined loaf tin. Top with oats. Then bake for about 50-60 minutes.
