Chef Craig Flinn’s Spiced Pear & Rum Raisin Loaf
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 65 minutes
This spiced and sweet loaf doubles as a great hostess gift for any soirée this season. Chef Craig Flinn partnered with Egg Farmers of Canada and Food Banks Canada for their annual #RecipesThatGive campaign.
Yield: Serves 8
- In a large bowl, whisk together wet ingredients. Whisk in dry ingredients until smooth. Then, fold in the chopped pear.
- Add the batter to a standard sized 8” x 4” (20 x 10 cm) loaf pan that has been lightly sprayed with nonstick spray or greased with butter. As an optional garnish, you can sprinkle the top of the batter with an additional 1 tablespoon of brown sugar.
- Bake in a preheated 350°F (175°C) oven for 50 to 55 minutes or until a cake tester or skewer can be inserted and removed from the middle without appearing “wet” with batter. Leave to rest for 10 minutes. Unmould and allow to cool before slicing.
