Nigella Lawson Maple Pecan Muffins created by Jennifer B.

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

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Fill a 12 cup muffin tray with paper liners or butter it.
  • You can also use mini-muffins in which case it will make about 28.
  • Reserve 1/4th of the chopped pecans.
  • Mix together remaining pecans with flour, salt, wheatgerm and baking powder.
  • In another bowl, whisk together milk, egg, maple syrup, oil and vanilla.
  • Pour the liquids into the dry mixture.
  • Gently fold to mix.
  • The batter can have some lumps.
  • Do not overmix because these muffins can get tough.
  • Spoon into the muffin tins.
  • Chop the remaining nuts finely and mix with the brown sugar.
  • Sprinkle a little on the top of each muffin.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes until tester comes clean (less if baking in a mini muffin tin).
  • The nut topping turns golden but the muffins will be very pale.
  • Remove muffins to a cooling rack.
  • Serve them warm or at room temperature, may be with some more maple syrup.

    Just made these, increased flour to 3 cups & used self raising, no baking powder.<br/>Oats instead of wheat germ. Absolutely lovely!

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