Pear Ginger Wheatcakes


Author Notes: These are made in muffin tins, but are quite unlike your average muffin- they reminded me the most of Scottish oatcakes, hence the name. They are full of whole grains and spices, with a hint of sweetness from pear and honey. They are good with butter and jam or honey, cream cheese, or plain. Make sure your whole wheat flour is coarsely ground- almost like very fine bulgur wheat- to get the right consistency. Jenb42
