Coffee Cake Muffins

The dry ingredients for these muffins can be combined the night before baking. In the morning, just add the liquid ingredients and mix.
Another bonus is the variety. You can add a cup of raisins or blueberries or raspberries or diced apples...the list goes on.

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup oil

1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a large bowl combine all (except nuts) dry ingredients. In another bowl beat the egg, milk and oil and stir into dry ingredients just until moist. I added 1 cup of raisins to the batter but get creative. This weekend I'll be making them with diced apples.

Spoon mixture into lined muffin tins and top with chopped nuts.

Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes.
Cool for 5 minutes.
Combine the glaze ingredients and drizzle over muffins.
