Welcome to Freezer Friday! Due to the fact I have 4 little ones and homeschool, I need all the help I can find. Simply post a recipe that can be made, frozen and then later reheated(thawed, etc) and consumed. Make sure that you include freezing and reheating instructions in your post. Then come here and add you post (not your blog) into Mr. Linky.

Now onto the food fun!

Pear Bread

I love this fall treat. You can also make this with a firm apple. Due to the fruit it stays extremely moist when frozen. Make sure you let is cool completely before freezing. Then just thaw and slice!

2 c Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/4 c Oil
1 c Sugar
2 Eggs
1/4 c Applesauce
1/4 c Sour Cream
1 tsp Vanilla
1 c Fresh Pears, chopped
1 c Nuts, chopped (optional)


Combine flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl. In large mixer bowl, beat oil and sugar until well blended. Beat eggs, one at a time, then add applesauce, sour cream and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and stir until moist. Stir in pears and nuts. Spoon into well-greased loaf pan. Bakes at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan 10-15 minutes. Cool the rest of the way on the rack. When cooled completely wrap tightly and freeze.
