    daisy M's Note:

    This is a Nigella Lawson recipe from 'Feasts'. It is slightly sweet and has a tender crumb. The wheatgerm makes it, sort of healthy.

      I liked the crunchiness of the pecans, but overall I found the muffins a bit bland.

      I've been on the "lookout" for a pecan, brown sugar muffin. I immdiately made these after browsing the new recipes! They turned out excellent! I added a bit of maple flavoring and used light brown sugar in the topping. My batter made 10 large muffins. I loved the addition of wheat germ, which along with them not being very sweet, makes them very healthy in my book! Roxygirl in Colo.
