I love Baklava and this is a delightful treat that brings the same flavors through. from How To Be a Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson.

These muffins are GREAT! Too bad the rating scale only goes up to 5! I found Tebo's tip helpful...used paper liners and I'm glad I did. I didn't have any buttermilk so I made a substitute (1 cup milk, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, stir, let sit for 10 minutes. For this particular recipe I just added the other 2 tbsp. milk without adjusting the lemon juice.). Muffins had a nice texture. Also, pecans are a staple in my house so I used them instead of the walnuts. I also brushed on the melted honey...not as messy. Thanks, Erin! M&Mers
