Pears and Advocaat may sound like a surprising combo, but don't knock it till you try it. There is something about this delicate balance of flavors that really works! The result is a light, fluffy muffin that is decidedly moreish. You can play around with this recipe, by using raspberries or other fruit instead.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour (225 g)
  • 1 cup sugar (200 g)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp Advocaat
  • 1/2 cup milk (100 ml)
  • 1/2 cup oil (100 ml)
  • 1 pear, peeled and diced


Preheat the oven to 347 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 12 cup muffin tray with baking cups. Mix the self-rising flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl, beat together the Advocaat, milk, and oil. Now add the wet ingredients to the dry, along with the diced pear, and stir until just combined. Spoon the mixture into the baking cups. Bake the pear & advocaat muffins for 25 minutes or until golden brown on top.


You can also use 2 eggs instead of the Advocaat.
