Take a break from banana bread and savor a quick-to-make, sweet-and-sassy cousin.

Ingredients

1 1/2
cups finely chopped rhubarb (1/2 lb)
1 1/2
cups chopped peeled or unpeeled pears (1 1/2 medium)
1 1/2
cups sugar
1/2
cup vegetable oil
1
teaspoon vanilla
4
eggs
3
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1
cup chopped nuts, if desired
3 1/2
teaspoons baking powder
1
teaspoon salt
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1 Move oven rack to low position so that tops of pans will be in center of oven. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottoms only of 2 (8x4- or 9x5-inch) loaf pans with shortening or cooking spray.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix rhubarb, pears, sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into pans.
  • 3 Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Loosen sides of loaves from pans; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely before slicing, about 1 hour. Wrap tightly and store at room temperature up to 4 days or refrigerate up to 10 days.

Expert Tips

There's no last-minute fussing with quick bread loaves. Slice ahead of time for ready-to-serve convenience.
