Maple Syrup Muffins

Hi Everyone! So to celebrate the beginning of Autumn * and the return of the Great British Bake off*  I did some baking- Maple Pecan Muffins.  I got this recipe from the Irish Chef Rachel Allen’s book, Rachel’s Favourite Food at Home. What I love about this recipe is not only how delicious the muffins are but how easy the recipe is to follow and the little amount of preparation time that is needed.

Muffin Recipe

1 egg

2oz of oats

75 ml of milk

3oz soft butter

3oz of light brown sugar

8oz of plain flour

3 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

3oz chopped pecans

For the Glaze (optional) 

2oz softened butter

2oz sifted icing sugar

1 tbsp of maple syrup

12 pecans maple pecan muffins

Method

 1) In a large bowl whisk the egg, oats, maple syrup and milk and set aside to allow the oats to soak in the mixture.

2) In another large bowl beat the butter and sugar together to make a soft paste.  Gradually add the milk mixture, stirring all the time, and then stir in the sifted flour, baking powder, salt and roughly chopped pecans until just combined.

3) Spoon the mixture into 12 paper cases in a muffin tin and bake in the oven at 200 degrees or Gas Mark 6 for 18-25 mins.  I would advise checking the muffins every couple of mins after the timer hits 18 mins so that they do not burn

4) For the glaze, cream together the butter, sugar and syrup.  Using a knife, spread the glaze over the tops of the cooled muffins and decorate with a pecan on top.

I hope that you try this recipe and if do you enjoy the muffins! They really are delicious and go well with a hot chocolate
