I am always looking for great muffin and quick bread recipes.  So, when I came across this recipe for Cinnamon-Pecan muffins, I had to give it a try!  At first glance, it seemed easy enough — common ingredients that are already in my pantry, simple instructions and, most importantly, cinnamon!  I love cinnamon anything! 

The Recipe

1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans, lightly toasted
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease 9 muffin cups.  Fill the remaining cups half-way with water.

In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients.  In a seperate bowl, mix the wet ingredients.  Incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry ones.  Mix until mixture is moistened, being careful not to over-mix the batter.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a cake tester, inserted into the center of a muffin, comes out clean.

Was it a keeper?

These muffins were incredible!  The recipe was very quick (I had everything together in under 10 minutes) and simple.  Next time (and I’m sure there will be MANY next times!), I will try adding blueberries or chopped apples.  Also, I think I’ll try baking them for less time — just a few minutes less.

If you’re looking for a great brunch item or need to whip something up quickly for unexpected guests, this recipe fits the bill!  Easy, fast and delicious!

We highly recommend them!
