Ginger Pear Muffins

It’s not quite my mom’s recipe but it’s a pretty good one all the same. My recipe is pretty strong with ginger and a little spicy, if you don’t like that you can cut the ginger in half or leave out the fresh ginger.

Ginger Pear Muffins

2 ripe pears, washed, cored, and chopped fine
2 eggs
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 inch  fresh ginger, pealed and grated fine
1/4 cup oil (I used olive oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon cardamon
1 1/4 cup flour
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 325.

Combine pears, eggs, ginger, oil, and vanilla.  Mix well.  Add in baking soda and powder, salt and flour and stir until it just mixes together, don’t over mix.  Fill muffin pans (I have some new silicone ones, love them!) half full and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool and eat.  Yum!

If you want you can bake it in a loaf pan but it’s going to take closer to 40-45 minutes to bake.
