1 cup unfed sourdough starter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3/4 cup white flour

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

In a large bowl, combine sourdough starter and sugar. Add eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, whisk together both flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the sourdough mixture. Add apples and pecans. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full and bake about 20 minutes, or until muffins test done with a toothpick. Cool in pan 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack. When muffins are cooled, add glaze.

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 tablespoons milk

In a small microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Add milk and stir until smooth. Place glaze in a small zip top plastic bag. Snip off one corner of the bag and use to pipe glaze onto muffins.
