Serving Size: Makes 12 Muffins Ingredients
  • (((( FOR THE MUFFIN BATTER ))))
  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 3 tsps Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 3 T Butter (melted and cooled)
  • 1 Egg (large)
  • 1 Cup Whole Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • (((( FOR THE FILLING ))))
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 tsps Cinnamon
  • 1 Cup Walnuts (chopped roughly)
  • 3 T Butter (melted)
  • (((( FOR THE GLAZE ))))
  • 2 T Cream Cheese
  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Whole Milk
Directions
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a regular muffin tin with muffin cups. For your muffin batter: In a large bowl, sift your flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. To that add in your melted butter (cooled so as not to cook the egg), egg, milk and vanilla. Mix together thoroughly until combined.
  • In a separate small bowl, prepare your filling by combining your brown sugar, cinnamon, walnuts, and melted butter. Mix together until incorporated.
  • Mix half of your filling into your muffin batter and reserve the other half of the filling.
  • Pour about 1/3 cup of your muffin batter into each muffin cup until all the batter has been used. Top the muffins with the remaining filling. Bake in the oven for 15-17 minutes (until cooked through completely). Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before removing the muffins from the muffin tin.
  • While your muffins are baking, make your glaze by combining the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and milk and mixing until smooth. If it's too thick, place the mixture in the microwave for 15-30 seconds and allow it to become more like a glaze.
  • Once you've removed your muffins from the muffin tin, drizzle the glaze on top of each muffin. You may have extra glaze which you can use to dunk the muffins in!
