Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 375°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Grate the pear on the large side of a box grater; discard the core. Roughly chop the walnuts (if using). Halve the lemon crosswise; squeeze the juice into a bowl to get 1 tablespoon, straining out the seeds. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, warming spices, and a pinch of salt. Whisk to combine. Melt the butter in a medium bowl in the microwave (or melt in a small pot on the stove, then transfer to a medium bowl). Add the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and egg; whisk to combine.

2 Make the batter & bake the muffins

Add the grated pear to the bowl of wet ingredients and stir to combine. Transfer the pear mixture to the bowl of dry ingredients. Using a spatula, gently stir to combine, then fold in the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts (if using). Lightly grease 6 rounds of a cupcake tin (or line with cupcake liners). If you don’t have a cupcake tin, lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish. Transfer the batter to the prepared tins or baking dish. Bake 20 to 24 minutes (muffins) or 23 to 27 minutes (cake), or until the batter is cooked through and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack; let cool about 1 hour, or until room temperature (for quicker cooling, place in the refrigerator).
