Spiced Pear Muffins – Willey’s Weekly Bake 160


This weeks bake is another seasonal one using pears from the garden from home as Mum left me with so many I couldn’t eat them fast enough! This was a great way to use them and the muffins are perfect for freezing to enjoy another day. I made a small batch as it was only me eating them but you can just double the size easily.
