There is nothing more delicious in the morning than Pear and Jam Muffins with a cup of coffee, tea or milk! I used homemade fig jam, but you can use any flavor!

So it’s time to announce that the Recipe Nomad is going to have to pack up soon and move back to the USA. Does that mean that my life as a food blogger is over? No way! I’m just going to need my graphic designer to redo my logo and drop a fork in Birmingham, Michigan. Am I excited? Sure. Nervous? Kinda.

I knew we would never be expats forever so I cannot say I’m completely surprised by this. What surprised me is the suddenness. June 2018. I was hoping for a few more years here but I am so incredibly grateful to all of the time and opportunities I’ve had in Shanghai!

I started Recipe Nomad here!

I wrote dozens of recipes for Shanghai Family Magazine and Goma Greens.

I’ve met more amazing people than I could have ever imagined from every corner of the world. I am proud to say I have friends from Spain, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Mexico, Hong Kong, Singapore and more… This large large world was made a little bit smaller with this experience.

Well the cat’s out of the bag now!

I’ll continue blogging during this transition because while I have to stop writing recipes for SFM and Goma Greens I need to take a piece of my adventures in China with me. That’s why I started Recipe Nomad. It’s nice to know that while I will have to say good bye to a lot of things during this move I will be able to bring a piece of my life from Shanghai with me to Michigan.

This blog has also allowed me to become a much better cook and baker. Like this simple recipe for scrumptious Pear and Jam Muffins. Thanks to blogging and experimenting I have a basic muffin recipe now. It’s an adaption of a few muffin recipes I’ve tried along the way. You can add anything to it- I find plain muffins to be a bit bland for my American palate. I love to combine fresh fruit and jams in tarts, cakes and muffins so this time around I decided to go for a pear and fig combination. The two are great in a salad so why not in a muffin.

If you’re not a fan of either the fig jam (recipe here) or the pears try a different combination. The basic batter mixture is perfect for anything your belly desires!

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup Flour
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 cup Jam, any flavor like fig, strawberry or blueberry

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl combine all of the dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the milk, egg and oil. Pour into the middle of the dry ingredients and stir until just combined so the batter is still lumpy.
  3. Gently stir in the pears and jam.
  4. Pour the batter into a lined muffin tin. Bake at 400 for 16-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Remove from rack and serve warm.
