About this recipe: Pears are delicious eaten fresh but can also be used in a variety of recipes such as this muffin recipe. This is a marvellous weekend morning treat.
South African apples and pears are in season from February to October.
Not sure where I went wrong. Pears sunk to the bottom and toffee all melted, sticking the muffin to the paper. Bit too much cinnamon for my liking too. They did look great until I tried to get the paper off. - 29 Sep 2014
Very easy muffin recipe! They smell delicious while baking and aren't too sweet. My only dilemma was finding 'soft toffee'; I used fudge in the end which I think was too soft. Will try keep a bag of Thornton's safely in my baking cupboard for future use. - 29 Apr 2013
