They say patience is a virtue…. and in this case it sure was. I’ve been looking for barstools but the ones I found in the stores were so expensive. So.. that’s when my friend “patience” kicked in. I stumbled across another estate sale and found these great barstools. Got so excited over finding them and the price was perfect – $25.00 – They had to come home with me. Cleaned them up and they were perfect
3 c. all purpose flour 1 c. oil
1 t baking soda 3 tsp vanilla extract
1 t salt 2 eggs
1 t. cinnamon 2 c. pears, peeled and chopped (can use apples)
1 c chopped walnuts
1-1/2 c sugar
combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl; stir in walnuts and set aside. combine sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs in a medium bowl; stir in pears, then add to flour mixture and stir just until moistened (batter will be thick). Spoon batter evenly into a greased 10″ tube pan. bake for one hour at 325 degrees until a toothpick comes out clean. cool in pan and remove from pan.
