trick or treat

Devilishly good pear and mandarin orange that thinks it’s a pumpkin. What good can come from this?
Delightful sweets to begin party with! 

Big muffins
130 g light brown sugar
180 g all purpose flour
30 g cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
60 ml sunflower oil
2 eggs
zest and juice from 1 mandarin orange
one huge pear, 250 g, peeled and diced

crumble topping
3 tbsp all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
35 g cold butter, diced
3 tbsp granulated brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground cardamom

Preheat oven to 200°C and line a muffin pan with 12 muffin cases. Beat eggs, sugar, oil, zest and juice from a mandarin orange by hand. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, ground cardamom and baking powder and add this mixture, beating gently, to the egg mixture. Fold in peeled and diced pear and  spoon it into the prepared muffin cases.  Fill cases 3/4 full.
Crumple topping
In a bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and cardamom. Add butter and mix with your hands until mixture is crumbly, sandy. Add sugar and mix everything with a spoon. Sprinkle crumble on top.
Bake muffins for 25-30 minutes.

Happy Halloween!
