Food to love : Muffins!

My mom is the ultimate baker... well, really just cook in general... she can do it all! Growing up we would wake up on weekend mornings to the smell of fresh muffins baking in the oven. This was pretty routine too, so she got creative with all of the variations of muffins that she made... my favorite being coffee muffins. The other morning I was having a craving (go figure) and made my very first batch of my mom's coffee muffins. They turned out pretty tasty especially with the crumble on top! Perfect for breakfast, afternoon snack, midnight snack, etc.


1/2 cup melted butter

2 c brown sugar

3/4 c milk

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg

2 tb instant coffee

1 3/4 c flour

1 tb baking powder

1/4 tsp salt


1 tb sugar, and 2 tb finely chopped pecans, mixed

Preheat oven to 375. Cream butter and sugar, then add the milk, vanilla, egg and coffee, and mix well.

In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the wet ingredients and stir until just mixed, being careful not to over beat. Fill greased muffin tins (or you can use paper baking cups) 1/2- 3/4 full. Before baking, sprinkle a little of the sugar-pecan topping on each muffin.

Cook for 15 minutes or so, depends on oven!

yield: 10-12 muffins
