Recipe Ingredients for Glazed Pear Muffin

2 large pear
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup sour cream
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup fat-free skim milk
2 cup all-purpose flour, unbleached
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp water

Recipe Directions for Glazed Pear Muffin

  1. Preheat oven to 375F and coat a 12-hole muffin tin with cooking spray (or muffin liners).

  2. Core and chop pears into tiny cubes; place in a large bowl. Add cinnamon, granulated sugar and lemon juice to pears; gently stir and set aside.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together sour cream, egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla and milk; set aside.

  4. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

  5. Make a well with a spoon in center of flour mixture and pour in sour cream mixture and fruit mixture, alternating in small batches; mix until barely blended. Do not over beat. (NOTE: Batter will be very thick.)

  6. Drop batter into prepared muffin holes until about 2/3 to 3/4 full; bake until tops are golden, about 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes in muffin pan; remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. (Or leave slightly warm to dip into glaze for easier preparation.)

  7. While muffins are cooling, make glaze: Mix together powdered sugar, ginger, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and warm water in a small bowl (add another teaspoon of water if glaze is too thick). Spread a thin layer of glaze over each muffin. Yields 1 muffin per serving.
