  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) seedless raisins
  • 1 1/3 cups (325 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) baking powder
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) ginger
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) allspice
  • 1/4 tsp (1.25 mL) clove
  • 1/4 tsp (1.25 mL) nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp (1.25 mL) salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) canola oil
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) milk
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) rum extract or vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) peeled and chopped pear

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together egg, oil, milk and vanilla or rum extract.
  2. Whisk in dry ingredients until smooth. Then, fold in the chopped pear.
  3. Add the batter to a standard sized 8 x 4 inch (20 x 10 cm) loaf pan that has been lightly sprayed with nonstick spray or greased with butter. As an optional garnish, you can sprinkle the top of the batter with an additional 1 tablespoon of brown sugar.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350°F (175°C) oven for 50 to 55 minutes or until a cake tester or skewer can be inserted and removed from the middle without appearing “wet” with batter. Leave to rest for 10 minutes. Un-mold and allow to cool before slicing.
