Pear Sage cupcakes:
3 1/4 cups of flour
1 1/4 cups of sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup + 6 tbps canola oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of sour cream
1 cup of milk (I did 1/2 cup of milk, and 1/2 cup of heavy cream)
1 cup of sliced pear
1/2 cup of chopped sage.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
As per my usual methods, mix everything together. I am the queen of lazy baking. :P
If you insist, you can mix the dry stuff together, and mix the wet stuff together, THEN mix those together. ;)

Drop a spoonful of batter into the cupcake tins. Then place a layer of sliced pear, then more batter, then pear, then batter.

Bake for about 18 minutes or until it passes the crumb test.

Honey ginger buttercream:
Directions here
But add 1/4 cup of honey and either diced/mashed fresh ginger, or diced candied ginger.

  6. When baked, the pear pretty much turns to mush (okay, more appetizing than that sounds). Which I like better than the amazing disintegrating strawberry, lol.
