Pear and Ginger Muffins

So I was going to blog about my lessons from grace as a running series but tonight I will share with you the pure beauty of blogging!

I went on to PaisleyJades blog yesterday where miraculously she had blogged about making Feijoa Muffins. The miraculous part was that I was going to a morning tea the next day and was thinking about what to make while at the same time really not having a lot of time to make anything.

Long story short, I thought her recipe looked so easy I decided to whip it up! Problem: No ripe feijoas, so I jigged it a bit to use what I had. The result was delicious pear and ginger muffins that literally took 20 mins all up to make, and tasted scrumptious!

Pear and Ginger Muffins
1 pear
1-2 tsp crushed fresh ginger (you know, like garlic in a jar)
75 gm butter or marg.
2 eggs, beaten
¾ cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups flour
milk to mix (you don't need much)

1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbls sugar

Grate pear into a bowl. Hold back pear and pour out excess juice otherwise mix is too wet. Put butter in bowl and microwave 1 min to melt. Stir in ginger. Add beaten eggs and combine. Fold in dry ingredients, add liquid to achieve a soft consistency. Spoon into muffin pans. Mix cinnamon and sugar topping and sprinkle over muffins.

Bake in 200° for 10 to 15 minutes.
Makes 12 standard, or 24 mini muffins
