Pear-Anise Muffins


From EatingWell:  May/June 1997

Fragrant pears and anise pair well in these moist muffins.

1 dozen muffins | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 50 minutes



  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. Toss pear with lemon juice in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. Whisk egg, egg white and brown sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Add buttermilk, oil, aniseed and vanilla and whisk until blended. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the dry ingredients; add the wet ingredients and grated pear and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined.
  4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake until tops spring back when touched lightly, 15 to 20 minutes. Loosen edges and turn muffins out onto a wire rack to cool.
