St Patty´s Day

What do you make when you have no time but still want to make something sweet? Something that is yummy and takes almost no time to prep?

For me – corn muffins, but this time with a twist!  I used pear puree.edit-1Corn muffins with pear

Ready in 30 minutes!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

1 cup cornmeal

1 cup all purpose flour

1/3 cup white sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 egg beaten

1/4 cup canola oil

1/2 cup pureed pears *I used Magic Bullet to puree 2 canned pears

3/4 cup milk

In a stand mixer bowl mix together cornmeal, milk, egg, oil and pear puree. Mix in a medium speed for few minutes. Then add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

If you want to make 2 different colours, like I wanted to for St Patty´s Day, divide the batter into two separate bowls and add desired colour to it. I wanted to add green but unfortunately I only had neon green 🙂 So I had to use the neon!

Spoon batter into muffin cups, you can do one colour on top, the other one in the bottom or however you like, I did random patterns 🙂

edit-2Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes. I went with 20 minutes since my muffin cups were a bit bigger than usual.edit3They turned out very cute, not very St Patrick´s Day green but that was all I could manage 🙂 They tasted very nice and next time I might even add more pear and maybe not even totally puree it. And a lot of other colourful fruits and berries since I couldn´t do it this time since I wanted the green colour to be visible 😉

Have a wonderful day 😉
