Fresh Pear Muffins!
I am still swimming in a sea of fresh pears! I am slowly working my way through them one-by-one making pear chips, canning pears and now making these delicious muffins.
This recipe doesn’t use a lot of pears and I was a bit hesitant to stop all the canning and dehydrating to make muffins. But I love muffins. It is my excuse to stop and enjoy a cup of coffee and have a bite to eat. These muffins are definitely worth making.
These muffins are super light with very mellow flavors. Pears are very light in flavor and adding a touch of cardamon is just the right spice to match the pears.
What Ingredients are needed for Pear Muffins?
- Fresh Pears
- Vegetable oil
- Sour Cream
Can I use canned pears in these muffins?
I used fresh pears when making these muffins, however canned pears work too. If using canned pears, drain pears and pat dry with a paper towel before using.
