These are delicious!
I made them at the weekend and have been enjoying them ever since!
I found the recipe in this magazine that I got a few weeks ago because it had a yummy looking cake on the cover!

2 tsp lemon juice
250g(9oz) plain flour
50g(2oz) oatmeal
1 tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnnamon
100g (4oz) caster sugar
25g (1oz) chopped almonds
65g (2 1/2 oz) butter, melted
284ml buttermilk
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract

1. heat oven 200C/180C fan/gas 6
Peel core and dice pears and toss in lemon juice.
2. mix flour, cinnamon, oatmeal, baking powder sugar and half almonds in a bowl.
stir in half the pear mix.
3. Beat butter and buttermilk and eggs and vanilla and add to dry mixture to mix.
4.put into muffin cases and add rest of pears and almonds on top of mixture.
