Maple Walnut Muffins with Maple Glaze
Maple Walnut Muffins
1 & 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
2/3 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
In a medium sized bowl, combine the first four dry ingredients.
Melt the butter, then stir in the syrup and milk. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
Stir the wet ingredients mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir to moisten. Stir in the walnuts.
Bake in a 375F oven for 15 - 20 minutes, depending on how hot your oven is.
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
In a small bowl, blend the ingredients together until smooth. When the muffins have cooled off after baking use a butter knife or the back of a spoon to spread the glaze onto the tops of the muffins. I usually start off by putting a glob of icing onto each muffin to try to even out the amount of glaze on each muffin and then spread the icing over the top.
I think the glaze made these muffins amazingly tasty. Hope you like these as much as we did! :-)
