      Very tender, moist bran muffin! I had concerns that using the applesauce would affect texture. I added a generous amount of cinnamon to the batter. I think this would also work well with cardamom. Could easily sub out the pear for peaches, apricots -whatever! Very versatile recipe. Thakns!

      These were very moist inside and somewhat crusty on the outside. I didn't have canned pears, but used a couple of ripe fresh pears, diced. I didn't put the cinnamon topping on, but added 1/2 teas. cinnamon and 1/4 teas. cardamom to the batter. I used egg and oil, but will try again with applesauce. Thanks for this keeper.

      Very good muffins! I make bran muffins often, but had never thought to add pears. Since my son loves pears, I had to try this one. I made as directed, using canola oil and a large egg. I think the addition of cinnamon and sugar on the tops is a must--the cinnamon adds a nice element of flavor, and the extra sweetness of the sugar doesn't hurt at all. :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!
