9 ounces bread flour

6 5/8 ounces white whole wheat flour, divided

1 cup pearsauce

3/4 cup water

2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons olive oil


Combine the bread flour, 1 cup of the white whole wheat flour, pearsauce, water, and instant yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook. Knead on low speed until the mixture is elastic, about 10 minutes. It might not be completely smooth because of the bumpiness of the fruit. The dough should be tacky, but not sticky. If it's sticky or it doesn't gather around the dough hook as you knead, add the additional white whole wheat flour, as needed. Add salt and olive oil and continue kneading until they are completely incorporated. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and set aside until the dough has doubled in size, about an hour. Adjust oven rack to center position and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. When dough has doubled, remove from bowl, knead briefly, and form into alog about 9 inches long. Place log in a 9- by 5-inch bread pan. Cover pan with plastic wrap and set aside until dough has risen about an inch over top of the pan. Slash the top of the loaf and bake at 350 degrees F until internal temperature of the loaf reaches 200 degrees, about 50 minutes. Remove loaf from the pan and let cool completely on a rack before slicing.
