Buttermilk-Apple Spice Bread

Found this recipe on

I have a plethora (love that word) of pears so naturally I am changing out the apples for the pears.

I peeled and cooked the pears last night.

Kiefer pears need to be cooked.


4 c. unbleached white flour

2 c. oats

1 c. brown sugar, packed

2 tbsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

6 lg. apples, pared and chopped (4 to 5 c.)

3 eggs, beaten

2 1/4 c. buttermilk

1/4 c. melted butter or oil

2 tsp. vanilla

Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in large bowl. Add apples and toss to coat. Beat eggs in separate bowl and beat in buttermilk, butter, and vanilla. Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients, mixing until just blended. Spoon batter into 2 greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Bake at 375 degrees 1 hour and 10 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center of loaves comes out clean. Makes 2 loaves.

The loaves are in the oven as I type and this is the best picture I could get!
