I omitted the walnuts for the topping. I used only 1/4 cup of sugar in the muffins. I omitted the oil and used applesauce instead. They have a great taste. It was my first time doing pear muffins. Next time I'll chop the pears a bit smaller. Thanks KimmieCat :) Made for PAC Fall 2011
Really tastey!! I made regular sized muffins and got 14. I monly added 2 pears and it was plenty. They are sweet and the cinnamon gives it a great flavor. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
Made 12 of these muffins along with some others as a 'lure' during a park-wide garage sale, & these were a big hit! Made the recipe as given, using Bartlett pears, & those pears, along with the great spice combo, made for some exceptionally tasty muffins! Many thanks for sharing the recipe!

These are really good. I made these using Gluten Free Dairy Free Muffins Mix to be gluten free and they did stick to the muffin cups but I am convinced that is due to the other recipe. For the topping I used brown sugar & the rest for 6 muffins. As we do not consume intoxicants which nutmeg is, I used allspice is a smaller quantity as a replacement. I used yogurt rather than butter milk and vanilla paste for the vanilla to be alcohol free. The ingredient list does not state how much walnuts to add to the muffin mixture so I just guessed.
