Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced).

Step 2

Grease a 10.5cm x 22cm loaf pan; line base and two opposite sides with baking paper, extending paper 5cm over long sides.

Step 3

Beat eggs, vanilla and sugar in a medium bowl with an electric mixer for about minutes or until light and creamy.

Step 4

Stir in flour, almond meal, butter and buttermilk, then gently fold in pear and raspberries.

Step 5

Pour mixture into the prepared pan and sprinkle with flaked almonds and bake for about 1 hour or until cooked when tested with a skewer - don’t test the loaf through a crack and then turn loaf, right way up, onto a wire rack to cool.

Step 6

Serve sliced, spread with extra butter, if desired.


No special items needed.

Great combination of fruit! To make up for the difference between AU and US ingredients, etc, I added baking powder to my regular flour; I baked at 350ºF; I used 5 1/2 T of butter. I also use 3 small loaf pans, so I may not have baked them quite long enough, even though I did NOT test it in a crack, but in the tallest part of the bread!! Part of the inside was a little raw, but we didn't care! I made impromptu bread pudding out of one of the loaves - yummy!
