Got friends coming over for afternoon tea? Or are you minding the grandkids? Then our Pear and Ginger Muffins are the treat to make for your loved ones – they’ll love you for it too!
Serves: 12 muffins
Time: 35 minutes
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, plus 6 teaspoons extra
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2/3 cup sour cream or thick natural yoghurt
- 1/2 cup melted butter or coconut oil
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups peeled and chopped pears
Preheat oven to 200°C and prepare a muffin tray by lining 12 holes with paper muffin cups.
In a large bowl, add the flour, 3/4 cup of brown sugar, baking power and ground ginger, and whisk until well combined.
In a separate medium bowl, whisk the sour cream/yoghurt, butter/oil, and eggs. Once well combined, fold in the dry ingredients. Then add the pear and stir.
Spoon the batter evenly between the muffin cups. Sprinkle each muffin with a half teaspoon of brown sugar, and then bake for 20 minutes. Leave to cool on a wire rack before enjoying.
