Why I Love This Recipe

This muffin recipe comes from 'Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook, 12th Edition.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine (I used butter)
3 Tbsp. walnuts or pecans, chopped (I used pecans)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine (I used butter)
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup buttermilk (I did the milk with lemon juice substitution)


Preheat oven to 400 F.

Grease twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups or line with paper bake cups; set aside.

For topping, in a small bowl, stir together the 3 tablespoons flour, brown sugar, and the 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.

Cut in the 2 tablespoons butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; stir in nuts; set topping aside.

In a medium bowl, stir together the 1 1/2 cups flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, the 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, and salt; cut in the 1/4 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

In another bowl, combine egg and buttermilk; Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy).

Spoon half of the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each one-third full.

Top with half of the topping, the remaining batter, and the remaining topping.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden and a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes.

Remove from muffin cups; serve warm.
