Getting a soft and spongy loaf without using butter and eggs is all about selecting the right plant-based fats. Soy yogurt is a great choice, and we have used it here. But there's a magic ingredient in this recipe that replaces both animal fats and sugars: pearsauce.
You make pearsauce just like you do applesauce: simmer pears in water until you get a creamy paste. This paste is an excellent binder for your vegan bakes, just like butter or oil but healthier. Moreover, it carries with it all the natural sweetness of pears. Pair it with ripe bananas, and there is no need to use refined sugars at all.
