Cakey Chocolate Pear Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Lalaloula

These muffins are very, very yummy! They are juicy from the pears and so chocolatey good! Mmmm! This recipe originally was meant to make a cake, but I liked it better as a muffin. Naturally this means that the dough is stiffer and the muffins come out more cake like. I hope you enjoy!

Excellent Muffins Lalaloula, I really enjoy making muffins for Little Miss (DD), so when I seen this recipe I knew it would be right. Little Miss loves chocolate and I like pear. I cooked them for 20 mins in a 180oC oven. Thank you Lalaloula for posting your recipe
