Maple Muffins

Merry Christmas!!!
I hope today is full of sweet memories and great food!
In case you are still wondering what to make for Christmas breakfast/brunch this morning...here's a little help. These muffins make a great breakfast all by themselves but they will also be a wonderful addition to anything you serve with them. They're moist and have a hint of maple that makes your mouth water and warms your soul. My family couldn't get enough of them...they ATE THEM ALL...at one sitting!!

Maple Muffins
2 c. flour
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
3/4 c. milk
1/2 c. margarine or butter, melted
1/2 c. maple syrup
1/4 c. sour cream
1 egg
1 t. vanilla

3 T. flour
3 T. sugar
2 T. chopped walnuts
1/2 t. cinnamon
2 T. cold butter or margarine

In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Add milk, butter, syrup, sour cream, egg and vanilla; blend well. Fill greased muffin tins about 2/3 full, being careful not to overfill or there won't be room for your topping.
For topping- combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and nuts; cut in butter with two knives or a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over muffin batter. Bake at 400 degrees for 16-18 minutes or until muffin test done. Makes approximately 15 muffins.

Happy Cooking~

  1. These were REALLY good! I'd made something similar from a mix, but these homemade ones were much better. And just FYI, they're 5 points per muffin :).
