Pear Yogurt Bread

November 11, 2011

in baking, recipe

This was breakfast:


What?!? It’s cereal!!!


We obviously need some other type of baked goods in the house. I just received a Chobani package, so I decided to make Yogurt Bread


Adapted from Smitten Kitten’s recipe (which was adapted from Ina Garten’s)


Used a combo of both fresh and dried pears (sent by Oh! Nuts)


Changed around with what we had in the house


Pear Yogurt Bread

  • 1.5 cups + 1 TB Flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup 2% Greek Yogurt
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cups white sugar
  • 1/3 cup egg whites
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup melted Coconut Butter
  • 1 medium pear, peeled and diced
  • 3 California Jumbo Dried Pears, diced

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees, grease and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.

In one bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Put the yogurt, sugar, egg/egg whites, vanilla, and coconut butter in another – whisk well. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones gradually, whisking the entire time.


Fold the pears into the batter and pour into the loaf pan.


Bake for about 70 minutes (covered with foil for the last 15) or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.




While that cooled, I ate one of those fresh pears en route to a meeting…


…now I’ve gotta scarf down some food before a screening. Happy weekend everyone!

(UPDATE  – the bread turned out fantastic!  Highly recommend this recipe!)
