    2 sprays cooking spray
    2 lg pears with skin (or 2 cans of pears)
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/3 C splenda (or sugar)
    1 tsp lemon juice
    1/2 C sour cream
    1 lg egg beaten
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/3 C milk (skim)
    2 C flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/2 C powdered sugar
    1/4 tsp ground ginger
    1/4 tsp vanilla
    3 tsp water (warm)- more if necessary


Preheat oven to 375 deg. and coat a 12 hole muffin tin with cooking spray or muffin liners (*Note- also spray the muffin liners too*)

Core and chop pears into tiny cubes; place in large bowl. Add cinnamon, ganulated sugar and lemon juice to pears; set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together sour cream, egg, 1 tsp of vanilla adn milk; set aside.

In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

Make a well with a spoon in center of flour mixture and pour in sour cream mixture and fruit mixture, alternating small batches; mix until barely blended. Do not over beat. (note: batter will be very thick)

Drop batter by heaping spoonfuls into muffin holes until about 2/3 to 3/4 full; bake until top is golden, about 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes in muffin tin; remove from tins to racks and cool completely. (or leave slightly warm to dip into glaze for easier preparation)

Mix powdered sugar, ginger, 1/4 tsp of vanilla and warm water together in a small bowl. (Add more water if glaze is too thick)

  • I used red pears, very juicy. I used all the juice that dripped off the pears, so the center of the muffins was very moist. Reminded me of apple pie in the middle of a muffin. I used 2 tsp lime juice and 1 tsp water for the glaze. Nice flavor with the ginger. Will use less ginger next time. - 10/2/12
