Cardamom Pear Streusel Muffins
So, we’re having a bonus FRIDAY post today, by popular demand. You see, I made muffins last Sunday… first time in a few years! Between having to go off gluten for a couple years, not having a kitchen (tornado!) for much of that time, etc? Muffins weren’t on my priority list.
We had a handful of pears about to go bad this week, though. Seemed like the perfect excuse to whip out an old favorite – Cardamom Pear Streusel muffins!
I created this recipe a few years ago, when I went on a crazy muffin making binge. SO many awesome recipes came from that week – I’ll be sure to post them in the near-ish future.
Cardamom and Pear is one of my favorite flavor combinations for baking with, so of course I had to incorporate them into a muffin recipe. This recipe makes 12 big, moist, and delicious muffins with a delicate crumb and warm, exotic flavor. It’s the perfect way to start a day!
Anyway. I posted a photo and description of these online that morning, and was inundated with excited comments and requests for the recipe. As I have most of May already scheduled, I figured this would merit an extra blog entry.. and here we are, just in time for the weekend!
