Serves 9 - 12 | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 20 minutes


2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup maple syrup (only the real stuff, please!)
1/3 cup chopped walnuts

3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted

Pre-heat oven to 400F.

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients and whisk to combine thoroughly.

In a smaller bowl, combine egg, sour cream and syrup.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; mixing by hand just until combined.

Stir in the nuts.

Prepare a muffin tin by either greasing well, or by inserting paper liners.

Spoon the batter into the muffin tin, filling each cup 2/3 full.

Mix the streusel topping and sprinkle over each batter-filled cup.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

NOTE: This makes a rather stiff batter; perfect to use with a medium size scoop for portioning. Also, the recipe for the streusel makes quite a bit more than needed, so I usually make half the amount specified.

I found a version of this recipe in GOOD "OLE DAYS magazine. I added the nuts because...well...everything tastes better with nuts!!
