Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 and grease and flour 2 9x5 loaf pans.

In small bowl blend bananas and pears

In a large bowl, mix together eggs, banana mixture, sugar, cooking oil and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. In another bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and a bit of salt. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir with a spatula until it’s well moistened but not too well mixed.

Spoon batter into the loaf pans, filling about 2/3 of the way full

bake for 50-55 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted near the center comes back out clean.

Cool for 10 minutes in pan before taking a butter knife and loosening the edges of the bread from the pan. Turn out bread onto a wire baker's rack and cover with a dry towel until completely cooled.
