When you have this stuff lying around, magic happens.
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
2 large eggs
1/2 apple finely chopped
1/2 pear finely chopped
1/2 cup walnuts chopped
1/4 crumbled gorgonzola
Preheat your oven to 425°F. Lightly grease the cups of a standard 12-cup muffin pan. Or line the cups with papers, and grease the papers.
Blend together the dry ingredients.
Beat the milk, butter, and eggs until light.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Take a fork or wire whisk and blend the two briefly — about 20 seconds. Gently fold in fruit, nuts, and cheese.
Fill the cups of the muffin pan two-thirds to three-quarters full.
Bake the muffins for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of one of the center muffins comes out clean. Remove them from the oven, and as soon as you can handle them turn them out of the pan onto a rack to cool.
