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!

How to Make BONNIE’S BANANA AND PEAR MUFFINS

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an extra large baking tin with kitchen spray. One that bakes 6 large muffins.
  2. Assemble and measure all your ingredients to make the recipe before you begin.
  3. With a hand mixer, mix all your Wet Ingredients in the order given, for 1 minute.
  4. Then add the Dry Ingredients, and mix until combined.

    Spoon the thick batter into the tins. They will be about 3/4 full, and bake 20 to 30 minutes, depending on your oven. (it takes about 25 minutes in my oven.) Toothpick test centers to make sure they are done.
  5. Cool the muffins on a rack. You may frost the muffins or eat them plain. Nuts are optional. We prefer pecans.
  6. Taste one!
