I can't remember who gave me this recipe but I've had it in my collection for years and have never made it.  I haven't blogged since Valentines Day so I decided to give it a try.  It has an interesting combination of ingredients, especially the mango nectar, which by the way smells amazing while the bread is baking. This bread came out great,  super moist and flavorful.    Chunks of pear and the taste of mango nectar in every bite!  Thank you to who ever gave me this recipe.  It's a keeper.

1/4 Cup Butter, Melted
2 Tsp. Baking Powder
1 Cup Mango Nectar
2 Large Eggs
2-1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Sugar

16 Ounce Cans Pears, Drained and Chopped


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.  In a large bowl, mix together the melted butter, mango nectar and sugar.  Beat with an electric mixer until the sugar dissolves.  While beating, add the eggs one at a time.  Add the flour mixture and thoroughly blend with a wooden spoon.  Stir in the chopped pears.  Pour into a greased and floured loaf dish.  Bake 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
