Why I Love This Recipe

These are going great with the coq a vin I made this weekend, and will do just as well with the pasta fagoili soup I plan on making this week. I am planning on making an extra batch this weekend. The only thing I may change is baking them without the muffin cups. It seems like alot of muffin ends up stuck to the paper. I have a 12 ct nonstick muffin pan, so I think I will be OK

Ingredients You'll Need

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup vegetable broth
3 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1/2 cup loosely packed basil leaves, chopped
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 garlic cloves, minced


In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In another bowl, whisk the egg, buttermilk, broth and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Set aside 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Fold the basil, walnuts, garlic and remaining Parmesan cheese into batter. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full; sprinkle with reserved Parmesan cheese.

Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen.
