Sour Cream Pear Bread

A delectable fall loaf featuring chopped pears; rich and moist from the addition of sour cream



  1. Grease a large loaf pan. Line the bottom of the pan with a rectangle of parchment and grease the top of the parchment as well. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar into the pan, and tilt to coat the buttered surface. Shake out the excess. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350ยบ.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and ginger. Set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each. Stir in the vanilla and sour cream, mixing just until blended. Gradually stir in the flour mixture until fully incorporated. Fold in the chopped pears using a rubber spatula.
  5. Bake for 45 to 65 minutes or till a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan for 15 minutes, then run a knife around the outside edge of the cake. Carefully invert onto a cooling rack. If the cake won’t come out of the pan, tap it firmly with a knife on the bottom and sides of the pan. Set aside to cool completely.
