Now before you think that pear baby food is a typo, think again! I scooped up this little trick from a bakery caterer, and pear baby food makes a delicious cake or muffins. Try it and see. The muffins are light with just a hint of banana flavor. We also enjoy them frosted with butter cream frosting, or you can eat them plain. I bet you can't eat just one. Enjoy!
