Country pear muffins

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.5

I picked up a couple old recipe books at a thrift store on Friday. I have been having fun looking through them. Here is a recipe we tried out this morning from one of the books.

3 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp grated lemon peel
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups finely chopped peeled and cored pears

Sesame Seed Topping:

2 T sesame seeds
2 T sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg

Mix ingredients together

Blend in a large bowl the flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and lemon peel.
In a smaller bowl, blend eggs, buttermilk and oil. Stir egg mixture into dry ingredients and blend just to moisten. Fold in pears.

Spoon batter into greased muffin tins and sprinkle with sesame seed topping. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.
