These were a huge hit with all three of us. Even if John did ask where the "good" stuff was.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbls. baking powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
In another bowl, beat eggs, milk, oil brown sugar and vanilla until smooth. Stir into dry ingredients until just moistened. Do not over stir. Set aside.
Spoon 1 tsp. butter, 1 tsp. brown sugar and 1 heaping tsp. of chopped pecans into bottom of each greased muffin cup. Top with 1/4 cup of batter mixture.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until muffins test done. Invert pan onto a piece of wax paper/aluminum foil. Let stand for 2 minutes before removing pan.
Serve warm. John added butter to his, I prefer mine just as they are. They are just as good cooled as they are warm too!
