Pear Cardamon Muffin Recipe Gluten Free

for Sunday Morning Brunch

Sunday brunch.
Just the words make me relax.
I’d love to imagine that my Sundays have this lazy start to the day, but it infrequently happens.
See, I’m one of those folks who just can’t sleep in. My typical day starts before 6am weekdays and rarely can I sleep beyond 7am on weekends.
But in the Sunday of my dreams, I would have a lazy brunch with my husband and kids, accompanied by the dead tree edition of the NY Times, just got to check out the other weddings.
This quickly stirred together muffin would be the perfect touch. Spicy cardamom playing off of the tender pear chunks, crunchy with pearl sugar.

The combination of pears and cardamom is one of my favorites, especially in fall. I found the pearl sugar in the food area of Ikea around Christmas time. It is a traditional Scandinavian decoration for baked goods. but the larger crystals of raw sugar are just as pretty.
