   Recipe by: The New Dr. Cookie Cookbook Preheat oven to 350 degrees;
 coat a
   9 x 5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Whisk the flour with
 the
   baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt; set aside. Beat
 the
   egg, egg whites, brown sugar and oil with an electric mixer on medium
 speed
   until smooth. Add the honey, applesauce and lemon rind and beat again.
 If
   the pears are not juicy, add a few more teaspoons of applesauce. Stir
 the
   flour, pears and raisins into the batter by hand just until combined.
 The
   batter will be dry. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake
 for 40
   to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out
 clean.
   The crust may crack.  Cool in the pan on a wire rack for about 10
 minutes.
   Turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Makes 1 loaf. Penny
