Maple-Pecan Muffin

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup yogurt, whisked
  • 6 tbsp maple syrup plus 3-4 tsp extra for glazing
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 12 pecan halves
  1. Lightly beat the eggs, and then beat in yogurt, 6 tbsp maple syrup and the oil.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients except pecan halves. Make a well in the center and pour in the liquid mix.  Stir gently until just combined, taking care not to overmix.
  3. Pour into a greased muffin pan or a pan lined with paper muffin cups. Top each muffin with a pecan half.
  4. Bake at 400 deg for 20 min, until muffins turn golden brown and are firm to the touch.
  5. Allow muffins to cool for 5 min and then glaze the top of each muffin with the remaining maple syrup.
Makes 12
