Tea on Tuesday: Spiced Pear Bread

3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
3 cans (15-1/4 ounces each) sliced pears, drained and mashed
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup canola oil

In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, pears, applesauce and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Pour into four 5-3/4-in. x 3-in. x 2-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

Yield: 4 mini loaves (6 slices each).
