Baked some cinnamon pecan muffins this morning.....I must say that, on a cold winter morning... the smell of toasted pecans and the muffins in the oven... this is heaven for me....these yummy li'l things are just so easy to make...you have to give this a try....just perfect for breakfast, when you have a large group of people over.
Here is the recipe,
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, sifted
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar, packed
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. ground cinnamon (I added 1 tsp. as I just love the cinnamon flavor)
1 large egg, slightly beaten
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup milk
½ cup chopped pecans, lightly toasted
Preheat oven to 400 F. Sift the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Combine the beaten egg, oil and milk in a separate bowl. Blend well. Add all at once to flour mixture, stirring just enough to moisten. Stir in the chopped pecans. Spoon the batter into greased muffin-pan cups, filling each until they are 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Perfect with a hot cup of coffee....
