Eggless Whole Wheat Pear Bread- Vegan Quick Bread, No Sugar Added, #BreadBakers

I m baking with Bread Bakers after a long hiatus. Thanks to December and the baking fever, I joined. The theme for this month’s bread was also interesting, Fresh Fruit and No White sugar.  That made me more interested, i chose to bake a pear quick bread. I have used mejdool dates and honey as sweetners. In case you dont want to use honey, do increase the dates 6 or even 8 to get a sweeter bread.
I have flavored the bread with some ginger, cardamom and cloves. The warm spices makes it a perfect bread for the season. The bread was perfectly sweet for us, we enjoyed it warm as such. A lovely bread for a scrumptious breakfast or can also as an evening snack with some hot coffee.

Ingredients
1 cup Whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp honey (avoid for a vegan version)

1 tbsp flaxmeal , mixed with 1/4 cup of water
2 normal sized pears
4-5 nos mejdool dates (increase to 8, incase omitting honey)
1 tsp ginger powder

6-8 cardamom, pounded
3 cloves, pouned
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup oil

Method

  • Wash the pears, i didnt peel the skin, if you dont like the skin in your bakes, do peel. Core and Chop the pears roughly. 
  • Take the chopped pears along with mejdool dates, in a mixer and blend it to a smooth paste.
  • Take this paste in a bowl, add oil , flax egg and vanilla extract to it and whisk well.
  • In another bowl, take together flour, baking soda and powder, freshly pounded cardamom and cloves. Whisk well to combine.
  • Slowly add the dry mix to the wet in batches and using a spatula, whisk the flour into the wet mix. Take care not to mix vigorously, and mix in single direction.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared tin, bake inthe preheated oven for around 40-45 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Once done, remove the loaf and let it sit for 5 minutes, then using a blunt knife loosen the sides of the bread from the tin, then slowly unmould the cake onto a wire rack. Enjoy a warm slice with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
