Delicious Fall Pear Preserve Bread
• 1 cups all-purpose flour • 1½ cups sugar • 1 teaspoon baking soda • 1 teaspoon salt • 1 teaspoon nutmeg • 1 teaspoon cinnamon • 1 teaspoon ground allspice • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves • 1 cup vegetable oil • 3 eggs • 1 cup buttermilk • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract • 1 pint pear preserves from Troutt Old Time General Store & Market • 1 cup chopped nuts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and cloves in a mixing bowl and mix well. Add the oil and beat until blended. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the buttermilk and vanilla. Add the preserves and nuts and mix well. Pour the batter evenly into two greased loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
