Cinnamon pecan muffins



With the snow piling up outside, it'll be a good weekend to bake. I made these muffins last week for a snack day at work. With most of the office and several in the factory participating in the weight loss challenge, it may not have been a good idea to bring muffins; but should you have heard what they said about the guy who brought Krispy Kreme donuts!

CINNAMON PECAN MUFFINS
3/4 cup soft butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1 cup sour cream

TOPPING
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/3 cup granulated sugar

Cream the butter and sugar; blend in vanilla and eggs. Sift together flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Pour the flour mixture and the sour cream into the butter mixture and stir the ingredients by hand until blended. If the batter is too dry, addd a splash of milk.

Grease muffin tins or line with papers. Mix topping ingredients together. Drop one tablespoon of batter into each muffin paper. Sprinkle with one teaspoon of topping. Top with one more tablespoon of batter and then one more teaspoon of topping. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 375° or until a tester comes out clean.

Hope you like these!

These sound really good! I'm getting really tired of the old chocolate-banana standby, I think cinnamon would do the trick quite nicely!

Have a wonderful weekend
