Total time:
Serves: 8-12
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter or neutral oil, like grapeseed or corn, plus more for the muffin tin
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour ( I use at least one cup of whole wheat)
  • 1/4 cup sugar, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • [b]Topping[/b][br]
  • 1 cup milk, plus more if needed
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts, pecans, or cashews
  • 2 extra tablespoons melted butter
  1. Heat the oven to 375°F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin and line it with paper or foil muffin cups if you like.
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Beat together the egg, milk, and melted butter or oil in another bowl.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into it.
  5. Using a large spoon or rubber spatula, combine the ingredients swiftly, stirring and folding rather than beating and stopping as soon as all the dry ingredients are moistened.
  6. The batter should be lumpy, not smooth, and thick but quite moist; add a little more milk or other liquid if necessary.
  7. Mix half of topping mixture into batter.
  8. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins, filling them about two-thirds full and handling the batter as little as possible.
  9. Top with remaining topping mix.
  10. Bake for about 20 minutes
