It is raining! It is pouring. I am not snoring. I got out of bed and cleaned my room. Hmm that doesn’t work. However, this recipe of my great-grandmother’s certainly does…perfect for a rainy day or any day. Easy. Quick. Yummy. And…you have all the ingredients on hand! You can skip the nuts, but some lightly toasted pecans are superb in these.
1½ cups sugar
3 cups flour
½ cup butter
1 cup milk
7 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups nuts
Cream butter and sugar and prepare as any other muffins.
More complete instructions: Cream butter and sugar. Mix flour, salt, cinnamon together. Add to butter/sugar alternately with milk. Mix in nuts. DO NOT OVER-MIX. Over-mixing kills muffins. Just until moist. Don’t worry about lumps. Pour into greased muffin tins/liners. Bake at 350 F. for 20-25 minutes or until done.
