Ingredients for making this bread

Apart from the basic ingredients for baking the 3 main ingredients used here are

  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Spices
  • Oil
  • Sugar


For this recipe, I used sweet Gala apples. Honey crisp variety works perfectly well for this recipe too. I would recommend against using a tart apple such as the Granny Smith for this recipe.

Do you want to learn about the different varieties of apples out there, this season? You definitely need to check out my blogpost here, to learn more!


Bosc, Bartlett and Anjou varieties are perfect pear varieties for baking. It holds its shape and texture very well. In this recipe, I have used ripe Bartlett pears.


For this recipe, I used Cinnamon powder only as the spice. Some prefer to use ginger, nutmeg, cloves etc, along with cinnamon. Feel free to experiment with the flavors you enjoy.

For this recipe, I have used Coconut Oil, some prefer to use Rapeseed Oil due to its various health benefits of being an excellent source of Omega 3,6,9 and Vitamin E.


For this recipe, I have used Brown Sugar. We at home, do not buy granulated sugar and prefer brown sugar instead.

Kitchen tools needed for the best baking recipes

I have used a couple of basic kitchen tools for making my eggless apple pear bread.

A good bread pan is a must if you enjoy baking like I do. I prefer to use ceramic bread pans or aluminized steel bread pans for my baking.Both these kind of pans bake bread evenly and are helpful in releasing the bread with ease after baking is done.

Using glass baking pans is not a bad idea either.What I have realized is that my bread tends to sink when I use glass pans, so I prefer to use the ceramic or aluminized ones instead.

Using parchment paper to line my bake trays helps make the loaf nonstick to the surface, even if I am baking sweet breads.

If you do not own a baking pan, no problem you can use a baking dish instead and reduce the baking time by half.

Prep time


Cooking time






Total time




  • 3 cups All Purpose Flour

  • 2 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda

  • 1 1/2 cup Brown Sugar

  • 2 tsp Cinnamon powder

  • 1/2 tsp Salt

  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil

  • 1 cup Milk can substitute with buttermilk

  • 2 whole Apples peeled and chopped into small pieces

  • 2 whole Pears peeled and chopped into small pieces


  • In a mixing bowl, sift all the dry ingredients like all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon powder one by one. Gently mix them together and set aside.
  • In another mixing bowl, mix all the wet ingredients like milk, coconut oil and vanilla extract. To this add the sugar and mix well until the sugar dissolves.
  • Next add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredient mixing bowl gently and mix the two well together.
  • To the above, next add the peeled and sliced pieces of apples and pears and gently fold the batter to incorporate the fruit chunks until combined. At this point no flour pockets should be visible . Do not over mix the batter!
  • Place parchment paper on the baking pan and transfer the batter to the baking pan. Gently tap the pan on the kitchen counter lest any air bubbles be present in the mix.
  • Preheat oven @350 degree F.
  • Bake the bread at 350 degree F for 60-65 minutes. Check if baked properly by inserting a toothpick or fork to the bread. It should come out clean without sticking to prove it is ready and completely baked.
  • Cool the baked bread on a cooling rack for 10 minutes in the loaf pan itself.Then turn the loaf pan upside down to gently remove the bread from the pan and let it sit on the cooling rack to cool for the next 10-15 minutes.
  • Once cooled, slice it to a desired shape and serve as an evening snack with coffee, tea or milk.


  • Lining your baking pan with parchment paper ensures an easy removal of bread from the pan after being baked without the bread crumbling into pieces.
  • Mixing the dry and the wet ingredients separately first, then mixing the two together by folding the batter along with the fruity chunks ensures a uniform mix and flavor and an air pocket free bread when baked.
  • Check to see if you are using only baking apples and pears as other varieties might result in a mushy or flop bread recipe. It is best to peel the fruits before adding them to the recipe to ensure they do not separate while baking.
  • Do not let the batter sit once it is ready, bake it right away.This recipe does not have yeast added to it, so there is no need for a fermentation time to happen. It needs to go into the oven, right away.
  • Once in the oven, let it bake for the complete time of 60- 65 minutes. Do not keep opening & closing the oven door to check, since air drafts while baking can make the bread fall flat.
  • If you suspect that the bread is not baked in the center even after the required time ( which is unusual unless there is a problem with your oven) and being browned on the top, it is Ok to cover the pan with some aluminum foil for the last few minutes, to help bake well.

Common FAQ’s

What are the best Apples and Pears varieties to use for baking?

Granny Smith, Gala and Honey crisps apples are perfect for baking. In this recipe, I have used sweet Gala variety today for baking bread.

Bosc, Bartlett and Anjou varieties are perfect pear varieties for baking. It holds its shape and texture very well. In this recipe, I have used ripe Bartlett pears.

How to shred apples for the recipe?

A simple box grater would be sufficient to do the trick.

Simply peel the apples with an apple peeler and grate them using the largest holes on the grater.It’s super easy and doesn’t take much time at all.

If you o the other hand prefer to cut the apple first with an apple cutter and then slice them into desired chunks, that is fine too.

Do the apples have to be peeled?


Unfortunately, the peel will begin to separate from the apple during the baking process that will not only create air pockets but also an unappetizing texture.

To peel the apples I prefer to use an apple peeler a for quicker use a potato peeler would work too. Then just slice them into chunks using a fruit cutting knife.

Why is this Eggless Apple Pear bread also called Quick bread?

This recipe does not call for yeast and hence the wait period involved in waiting for the bread to rise is not there.It can be baked immediately once the batter is ready, hence this eggless apple pear bread is also known as Quick bread.

Helpful Tips for making the best eggless bread

  • For easy removal of bread and make your loaf non stick, always line your baking loaf pan with parchment paper. It helps the bread come out easily without breaking.
  • Gently fold the batter when making sweet breads. Remember never over mix as this will incorporate air pockets within the batter.
  • Bake the bread right away after the batter is mixed. It needs to go in the oven quickly. Hence this bread is known as “quick bread”
  • Air drafts can make bread fall, so do not open the oven door before the baking time (60-65 minutes) is complete.
  • If you notice that the top is browned due to the long baking time, yet the center needs to be baked some more, then wrap an aluminum foil on the pan for the last few minutes of baking.

I love apples and pears together in a recipe. I think I could easily veganize this one and use unrefined coconut sugar in place of regular sugar and gluten free flour.

This looks great! We cannot wait to try this!

Sounds really good! And it would be easy enough for me to just substitute the apples for more pears (I am allergic to apples). Perfect recipe for fall!

Sounds delicious! I admire how detailed these instructions are, and applaud you for being so energetic! Being retired after raising a family has resulted in me not wanting to cook or bake at all. I do have a few old favorites though.
