Apricot-Pecan Muffins

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Just Janie

A fluffy muffin bursting with flavor. This is a great muffin base recipe. I use it for all my muffin baking, just change the ingredients to use what I have on hand. The apricot is so wonderful. People who don't like apricots even ask for more of these.I Usually use my dehydrated apricots but fresh works great also.

Very good! Definately a fluffy muffin, as Janie says, rather than a dense moist muffin. I used fresh homegrown apricots and the muffins came out sweet and vanilla-y with chunks of sweet-tart fruit. I omitted the pecans and used 2 cups of fruit. They were so good, I made 3 batches and froze them. Thanks Janie!
