Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Throw some cupcake liners in your 12 cup muffin pan and spritz them with non stick cooking spray. Grab a bowl to mix your dry ingredients together. Grab your large mixing bowl to whisk together the wet ingredients. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until well mixed. Fold in the pears and pecans. Now you’re ready for baking.

Divide the batter into the 12 muffin cups. Pop into the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes. After you take them out, leave them in the muffin tin for another 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.

What’s the difference between a muffin and a cupcake?

Besides the obvious fact that a cupcake has frosting and a muffin does not, there is an unfrosted way to tell them apart. A cupcake doesn’t usually have a rounded above the liner top. Cupcakes are baked to be level with the top of the liner. This is because you are going to frost it. A muffin, however, is filled with batter to the top of the liner to get a nice rounded top. Now you have a fun fact to share with all your people.
