This is what Tink tinkered with and came up with the uber yummy goodness for today.
3 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups white sugar
2 1/2 cups peeled, shredded pears
1 cup chopped pecans
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
In a large mixing bowl, combine flower, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, combine eggs, oil, pears, sugar, pecans, and vanilla. Blend well. Add to dry ingredients. Stir to combine. Spook batter into two greased loaf pans.
Bake at 325 F for 75 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before removing from pan.
