Spiced Apple & Pear Loaves

After years I'm again back in Delhi and loving the winters. I've always been winter lover and my craze for hills starts from here. Majority of my days goes in planning our next trip before Ozzy's school start and our vacation gets limited. All I want to do is to go to The Himalayas without a return ticket...

And meanwhile that's been done, I made these amazing loaves and used the left over batter for muffins. The spices worked so well with Apple and Pear, it was the perfect winter blend with hot cuppa of tea.

This recipe was sourced from The Kitchn.

Recipe follows:

1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/4 Cup White Castor Sugar
1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Stick Softened Butter { I used with salt Amul butter and not added Salt}

1 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
2 Tsp Cinnamon Powder
1/2 Tsp Instant Coffee 
1/2 Tsp Ground Ginger
1/4 Tsp Nutmeg
1/2 Cup Milk
2 1/2 Cup Pear & Apples, cored, unpeeled & diced
1/2 Cup Roasted Nuts / Chocolate chips (Optional)
Cinnamon & Sugar to sprinkle on top


Preheat oven to 425 Degree F (220 degree C) and grease 9 inch loaf pan.

In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder, coffee powder, walnuts and chocolate chips.

In another bowl beat butter and sugar on a medium speed until pale and fluffy. Add in the eggs one by one beating lightly. Mix in vanilla extract.

Lightly add dry ingredients to the batter, alternating with warm milk until mixed. (Alternate in batches so that you always start and end with flour) Do not over-mix.

Fold in diced apples and pear with a spatula to incorporate them to the batter. Divide the batter between loaf pans. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top. 

Turn down the temperature to 400 degree F (200 degree C) and bake for about 20 - 25 minutes.
they are done when the top looks cracked and crusty, and the toothpick comes out clean.

Let it sit on wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.
