Pear Honey Buckwheat Bread

This is the perfect breakfast bread. Sweet, but only just. And healthy enough to feel like you are starting the day off right.


  • 2 cups (about 9 ounces/250g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (about 2.3 ounces/65g) buckwheat flour
  • 1/2t salt
  • 1t baking soda
  • 1t baking powder
  • 1/2c (250mL) neutral oil
  • 1/2c + 2T (280mL) yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2c (250mL) honey
  • 1t vanilla
  • 1 pear, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch dice


  1. Preheat the oven to 325F (160C). Butter a 9 inch loaf pan and line the base with parchment paper (an 8 inch pan would probably work too).
  2. Stir the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Whisk the wet ingredients together in a large bowl and add the dry ingredient mixture in 2 additions, stirring until just barely combined. Fold in the diced pear.
  3. Scrape into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean. Tent with foil if it starts to brown too quickly.
  4. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan, and then finish cooling on a rack.
