Maple Pecan Muffins

If you are looking for a simple, yet delicious muffin, try this one. It came about when we were having a guest over for morning coffee, and this is what I could scrap together from what we had in the refrigerator and pantry. Our guest liked them so much, he wanted the recipe to take home.

Pecan Maple Muffins

1 3/4 c. cake flour
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
3/4 c. dark brown sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 stick (8 T.) butter
1 c. buttermilk
2 T. maple syrup
3/4 to 1 c. roasted pecans, chopped

Mix together flour, baking soda, powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Melt butter. Pour into large mixing bowl. Cream together sugar with butter. Add 2 eggs, 2 T. maple syrup and mix until very smooth. Add cooled, chopped toasted pecans to flour and toss together. Put onto liquid in larger bowl. Add 1 c. buttermilk on top of that. Then stir gently until just combined. Divide among pre-greased muffin pan and. bake at 350 degrees for 18-25 minutes depending on the size of muffins.
