Ginger Pear Muffins Autumn

We love having treats ready to enjoy in our home. It makes it so simple when we have a craving, and it keeps us from going out to indulge on who knows what. When we can, we bake up a batch of muffins because they keep well and are the perfect base for incorporating seasonal fruit.

Today we made Ginger Pear Muffins filled with delicious Bosc pears. The buttermilk keeps the muffin moist while the lemon awakens the sweet and spicy flavors of chopped, crystallized ginger. With a sprinkle of raw sugar on top for an added crunch, we don’t know what’s better, the weather or this perfect muffin.
