Method

 

Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a 12-cup muffin pan, or spray it with non-stick cooking spray.

Sift the cake flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the brown sugar, bicarbonate of soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Mix well.

Beat the yoghurt, oil, molasses and eggs in a separate mixing bowl. Form a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid ingredients. Stir until the ingredients are well mixed.

Fold in the pears, raisins and walnuts and spoon the batter into the cups of the muffin pan. Bake for 20 minutes until the muffins have risen fully and are golden brown.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
