What can I say… I love muffins! Some mornings I am not in the mood, or just don’t have time, to make breakfast. So, having recipes for breakfast foods that I can prepare the night before is really helpful. Here is my recipe for Maple and Brown Sugar Muffins.
Maple flavored muffins with a brown sugar and cinnamon filling, topped with a maple glaze. Yummy!
Mix together the muffin batter, and fill muffin cups half way. I usually use an ice cream scoop when making muffins, for these I used my larger cookie scoop and it was the perfect size. Ingredients needed: Flour, Baking Powder, Brown Sugar, Salt, Eggs, Sour Cream or Yogurt, Milk, Oil, Maple Flavoring, and Cinnamon.
Mix brown sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over muffin batter. It is about 1 1/2 teaspoons per muffin.
Top the Maple and Brown Sugar Muffins with remaining muffin batter.
Bake the muffins in a 350 degree oven for 16-21 minutes.
Mix powdered sugar, cinnamon, maple flavoring and milk to make a glaze.
When muffins have cooled slightly, dip the tops into the glaze.
Maple and Brown Sugar Muffins
In a large bowl mix together…
1 3/4 cups Flour
2 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Canola Oil
1/2 cup Sour Cream or Yogurt
1/2 cup Milk
1 teaspoon Maple Flavoring
Mix until all ingredients are combined. Do not over mix. Fill muffin cups half way, using half of the muffin batter. I used a cookie scoop and it worked perfectly.
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
Add brown sugar mixture to muffin cups. I had about 1 1/2 teaspoons of filling for each muffin.
Add remaining batter to muffin pan. This recipe makes 12 muffins.
Bake muffins in a 350 degree oven for 16-21 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
Dash of Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Maple Flavoring
Just enough Milk to get right consistency to dip muffins into.
When muffins are cooled slightly, dip tops into glaze and then set on rack. They are delicious when still slightly warm.
*You can substitute Greek Yogurt for Sour Cream, it works great.
