Lemon & Pear Bread with Pecans

Lemon & Pear Bread with Pecans 


Ingredients:
1 egg
1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup pear sauce (or use applesauce)
1 tsp bourbon vanilla extract
1.5 tsp grated lemon zest
1tbs fresh lemon juice
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 350° F. Using a standing mixer beat egg slightly, then add sugar and melted butter. Beat until well combined. Add pear sauce, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla and continue to beat on slow-medium speed for about 1 minute. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg and then add  into wet mixture. Beat until smooth. Fold in pecans.  Pour into a greased (with butter) and floured (using GF flour) bread loaf pan. Bake for 55 min to 1 hour at 350° F. 

                                                                       the batter...
and the finished product.
I couldn't resist having a taste before it cooled.
Lovely.
