Brown Sugar Pecan Muffins

Brown Sugar Pecan Sour Cream Muffins


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350 and line a muffin pan with 12 paper liners.  In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, nutmeg and pecans.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, eggs, sour cream, oil and vanilla until smooth.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir just until combined.  Divide the batter between the paper liners.

In a small bowl, combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle generously over the batter.  Bake for 15-17 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool for about 10 minutes before serving.

Yields 12 muffins
