Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine flours, baking powder, ginger and baking soda in medium bowl. Toss pears with sugars and butter in large bowl. Add egg; mix lightly. Add flour mixture; stir just until moistened. (Batter will be thick.) Gently stir in cranberries.
Pour into greased and floured 8x4-inch loaf pan.
Bake 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool bread in pan 10 min. Remove to wire rack; cool completely.
Prepare using frozen cranberries. No need to thaw before adding to batter.
If your family isn't quite ready to make the step to whole wheat flour, try using white whole wheat flour instead.
Add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or Pecans to prepared batter along with the cranberries.
Fresh pears and cranberries team up to sweeten this deliciously moist quick bread. And since the bread is made with whole wheat flour, you can feel good about serving it to friends and family.
