Pear & Ginger Muffins

Hello :) A few days ago I made these delightful muffins! Pear & ginger, what a fabulous combination! After I spent the morning in Newtown with my sister opshopping and having coffee and custard tarts at Luxe Bakery, I had the afternoon to do some baking! These muffins do need quite a few ingredients, including pear puree, which I totally bought as baby food (like she suggested!).

I was going about to copy out the recipe, but it would appear someone already has :)

Recipe: Pear & Ginger Muffins

Look at these super cute measuring cups I got for Christmas! They made baking these muffins that little bit more fun!
You can see the pear puree baby food I bought, oh yeah...
So many ingredients! 
 Ok, so they weren't perfect because silly me only added 1/2 cup of oats instead of 1.5 cups and forgot to add the bicarbonate soda. I also used this sandwich wrapper paper instead of baking paper so the muffins kind of stuck to that. But in the end, they still tasted really good! They're quite dense and full of yummy flavours from the pears, raisins (I used sultanas though) and ginger. I added some grated fresh ginger too, because it's just such a nice, comforting flavour. 
Here are some fun things I bought in Newtown. First of all I finally got around to buying Seeker Lover Keepers album, which is totally lovely and awesome! And my 2012 diary, which is the third I've bought from Pentimento. I just love the simple layout and there's lots of different covers too. 

Well this will be my final post for 2011 !! 

Happy New Year everyone! How will you be celebrating?
