Now, I've made more banana breads than I will ever be able to count (partly because it's a hell of a lot, but also because I have a terrible memory). That being said, it's been around a year or two since I've attempted loaf making of any other kind. This morning when I woke up, I just felt the need to make a pear bread, and it came out completely perfect first time round. Before continuing I will say: I don't usually wake up and have visions of recipes which result in perfect dishes half an hour later ... most mornings I spend half an hour trying to work out what I want for breakfast.
What You Need:
3 kaiser pears, peeled, halved and de-seeded
2 cinnamon sticks
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cloves
2 star anise
1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed, 3 tablespoons water mixed)
1 1/2 cups almond milk
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
2 cups flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
What To Do:
Begin by poaching your pears. Add the cinnamon sticks, cinnamon sticks, brown sugar, cloves, star anise and pears to a medium saucepan, and add enough water to cover the pears. Simmer for 15 minutes - or until the pears are soft to touch, but not mushy. Remove from the liquid and let cool.
Meanwhile, begin with your load. Preheat oven to 180C and line a loaf tin. Next whisk together the flax eggs, milk, maple syrup, and melted coconut oil until combined. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth.
Sit pears, stem side up, in your lined loaf pan, before spooning the mixture in. I ensured to spoon in the mixture slowly, which allowed it to evenly surrounded each pear. Place in oven and bake for 40 minutes, or until golden.
Corinne Marabel, creator of A Vegan Kitchen, never intended to follow a vegan diet, much less did she intend on creating what she has today. In July of 2013, feeling constantly run down and tired and after spending far too many months treating my body like a garbage bin, Corinne decided to turn from vegetarianism to veganism for a short detox. However, days turned in to weeks, and she began to find herself feeling not only better internally, but completely inspired to create beautiful and clean vegan dishes.
