Pear and Cranberry Loaf

I highly recommend this loaf from Better Homes and Gardens recipes May 2009. Pictured above is the delicious result. Here's my lazier version for people with low concentration spans.

2 Pears
1 cup of craisins
125g of soft butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2/3 cup of caster sugar( I use a quarter of a cup but I am dieting)
1 and a half cups of Self Raising flour
1/2 cup of buttermilk

Preheat oven to 180ºC (Does anyone ever really do that>?)

Peel, core, cut up pears.

Throw into your mixing bowl butter eggs and vanilla and mix for 3 minutes( I lasted about 40 seconds, come on Better homes and Gardens 3 minutes takes ages...boring.....)

Chuck in flour and buttermilk, stir until thoroughly combined.

Throw in the pears and cranberries, combine then tip entire contents into a lightly greased loaf tin.

Cook for 30- 35 minutes

Poke it with a skewer to see if it is cooked through, now I know you all know how to do that. Then devour! (thats the bit I am really super good at)
