These muffins are fantastic. I was a little concerned that the muffins would be dry when I first mixed the wet with the dry ingredients. However, once I added the pears, the mix loosened up. They turned out to be moist and delicious. I'll make these again and again.
Delicious! Left brunch with a clean plate.
This is by far the best muffins we have ever eaten. I made a double recipe and I know my freezer will be raided. Thank you Laura for sharing!
These were delicious. I made half with walnuts and half without nuts, and both versions were excellent. I also added 1/2 tsp more cinnamon, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The pears made them nice and moist. My pears were not super ripe, and the sweetness level was perfect for us; if I ever make this recipe with very ripe pears, I will reduce the sugar a bit.
These muffins are fantastic. I made them exactly as the recipe stated. I might use brown sugar next time, but they are oh so good, definitely sweet, but I like sweet.
I just made these this morning to use up some overripe pears. Tried one while it was still warm. These were moist and very good! I took a few suggestions by other reviewers: used a little less sugar (just under 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup brown), added nutmeg, and I substituted walnuts for the pecans because that's what I had...and I like walnuts with pears. Will definitely make again!
Made these gluten-free, and they were wonderful! Family and friends all loved them, including all the wheat eaters.
These are delicious muffins. I often only make a half batch which gives me a dozen and they freeze well.
These are super delicious. The only change I made was instead of 1 cup of oil I used 1/2 cup of oil and 1/2 cup of applesauce. Will be making these again.
I used 4 pears and 2 apples (added up to 4cups), vegetable oil, no pecans, and added 2tbsp of flaxseeds. It was quite dry after mixing the wet and dry ingredients (almost like a dry cookie dough) but got wetter as i was spooning them into the muffin cups. A bit too sweet for my taste so i'll cut some sugar next time. Unfortunately my kids didn't like them but the adults love it. End product was moist and delicious. i baked them at 150C (fan forced) for 25 minutes and it was still wet, had to bake another 10 minutes. Yield 24 muffins (base 5cm, height 4cm). my muffins did not rise a lot, i put 3/4 full and they did not even rise much above the rim.
