Ginger pear muffins are made with ginger and topped with a honey glaze to add plenty of flavor. They are easy to make too—no mixer required!
I woke up this morning with the undeniable yearning to bake. It could be that it is Christmas time or that I spent a few hours on Pinterest the night before, but I’ll be honest, it is because I am finally out of my New York City apartment that boasts a whopping two-square-feet of counter space and an oven the size of R2D2, which also happens to be on a slant (don’t even try to talk to be about leveling a cake).
This, ahem, “living situation” has made me all the more grateful for my parents’ kitchen. No wonder I pushed my desire to sleep in aside and instead hopped out of bed to bake some muffins. Gingerbread was on my mind and to make these muffins a little more interesting I included pear in the batter and topped them with a honey glaze.
Easy to make (no mixer necessary) and quite delicious, these muffins are a holiday staple for the breakfast table.
