Sunday Brunch: Ginger Loaf w/ Poached Pears

1/4 Cup Margarine
1 tbsp Syrup (I used Agave, but Maple or Golden will work)
1/2 Cup Demerra Sugar
1/4 Cup Applesauce
1 cup Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
2 tsp Ginger
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
3/4 Cup Soy Milk

Heat margarine and Syrup on low in a pan. Meanwhile, cream sugar with applesauce. Add margarine melt to sugar mix. Add the rest of the ingredients except the milk and baking soda. Mix baking soda and soy milk, add gradually to mix. Put in a greased bread pan and cook at 350F for 25 minutes, or until a fork comes out clean.

6 Firm Pears, peeled, cored and quartered
1.5L water
2 cups Sugar
2 Vanilla beans, halved
1/2 tsp Peppercorns
1/2 Lemon, sliced
1 stick Cinnamon

Bring water and sugar to a low boil, add the flavours. Put he pears in, using a lid or parchment paper to keep the pears under water. Heat for 25 minutes or so, until pears soften up. Take off heat and let cool until warm, not hot. Serve pears with the loaf and enjoy!
