Tasty Thursday

These cake-like muffins are moist and delicious, not to mention easy to throw together. This recipe from Muffins by Cyndi Duncan and Georgie Patrick is definitely a favorite! 

Maple Pecan Muffins
1-1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1-3/4 cups coarsely chopped toasted pecans
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Generously spray muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.

Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and allspice in a large bowl. Stir in pecans.

Whisk brown sugar, butter, milk, syrup, egg, and vanilla in a medium bowl.

Make well in center of dry ingredients. Add butter mixture to well; stir into dry ingredients until just moistened.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake for 15–20 minutes, or until golden brown. 

Makes 12 muffins.
