These muffins were super easy to make and looked delicious. My wheat/gluten eating family all give 5 stars . Boy I wish that I could have had one of these muffins! I used regular salted butter and my family thought the taste was just right. They didn''t even wait for the muffins to cool down before the taste testing began. Reviewed for ZWT8 visit to Australia.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F
  2. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin, or line with paper liners.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, making sure that there are no lumps of brown sugar. Set aside.
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, beat together the milk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla.
  5. Stir the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
  6. Gently stir in 1 cup of the macadamia nuts.
  7. Spoon or scoop the batter into the muffin cups (they will be almost full). Sprinkle with the reserved ½ cup of nuts.
  8. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until lightly golden, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the muffin comes out with moist crumbs attached. Serve warm.
