"Originally from Woman's Day magazine passed on to me by my sister. For the buttermilk, you can sub 1/2 C. plain low fat yogurt plus 1/2 C. nonfat milk. You can also use canned pears-a 14-15 oz can, drained. Pat pears dry with paper towel and chop them for about 1 1/4 cup."

I required two packham pears to get 1 1/2 cups of finely diced pear and I baked at 175C fan forced as my oven tends to run hot and they came out perfect, also for the sugar I sub Stevia and only half the amount and we each enjoyed a muffin for afternoon tea with a cuppa and I froze what was left. The only other change I would make in future is to double the amount of ginger as I could barely taste it and it needed to come through more for me, thank you Mikekey made for Billboard Recipe Tag Game.
