Original recipe yields 10 muffins



  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease 10 muffin cups.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar, baking powder, salt and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Add melted butter, milk, instant coffee, vanilla and egg. Mix until all of the dry ingredients are absorbed. Fill the prepared muffin cups 2/3 full. Combine the remaining brown sugar and pecans, sprinkle over the tops of the muffins.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Good coffee flavor, but not very sweet despite the fact that I increased the brown sugar in them to 1/2 cup. Due to previous comments about dryness, I increased the milk to 1 cup and mine seemed sufficiently moist. This recipe easily made a dozen for me. I doubled the topping ingredients per another reviewer's suggestion and was glad I did. However, next time I'll omit the pecans from the topping. They became very "roasted" and had a burnt flavor and appearance which greatly detracted from the muffins. I'll just sprinkle the muffins with 1/4 cup brown sugar to give them a shiny appearance.



Everyone enjoyed these and were surprised at the unique blend of flavors. They didn't *look* as pretty as I would have liked though. Next time, I will play with the leavening agents to see if I can get them to rise higher. Also, there wasn't enough topping to top them generously. I would probably double the topping. Thanks for a great recipe, Julie!



My family LOVED these muffins. I made them for a friend and had to make two batches because we ate too many. The coffee taste really comes through - they taste like an English Toffee Cappaccino! -- J. Jackson
