Maple Pecan Muffins

     These muffins have a hint of maple sweetness and the crunch of pecans.  They are a favorite at our house.  Friends asked for the recipe when I brought them to a church brunch.

Maple Pecan Muffins
Ingredients:
     Dry:

  • 1  3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/2 cup of chopped pecans
     Wet:

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg
How to:

  1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray muffin pan with a nonstick cooking spray or use cupcake liners.
  3. In a small bowl combine the dry ingredients.
  4. In a large mixing bowl beat the softened butter until smooth.  Stir in the maple syrup, sour cream, and the egg.
  5. Add the dry ingredients.  Stir until combined.  Do not over mix.
  6. Add batter to the prepared muffin pan.  This recipe makes 18 large muffins.
  7. Bake for 16-18 minutes.
  8. Enjoy!
The recipe also tastes wonderful as a savory muffin.  Just substitute 1 cup of cooked and crumbled breakfast sausage for the pecans.
