coffee cake muffins.

2 c flour
1/4 c sugar
dash salt
3 T melted butter
1 egg
1 c milk, plus more maybe

1/2 c brown sugar
1 t cinnamon
1 c finely chopped walnuts, pecans, or cashews
2 T melted butter

Preheat to 400 F. Grease a 12-compartment muffin tin. Combine topping ingredients.

In a big bowl, mix dry batter ingredients. In another bowl, mix wet batter ingredients: egg, milk, butter. Add half of the topping ingredients to the wet ingredients.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Combine swiftly without beating. Stop as soon as everything is wet. The batter should be lumpy, not smooth, and thick but quite moist. Add a little more milk if necessary.

Spoon batter into muffin tins. Filling them about two-thirds full. Sprinkle on the remainder of the topping. Bake 20-30 min or until nicely browned and they pass the toothpick test. Then eat.

I'm glad that you add the "Then eat." part of the directions. Otherwise, people might just stare at them or something... :)

Oh my, my grammar is horrible. Do I really bring people to Slovenia to teach English? Scary.
