Tiny Pecan Muffins



Tiny Pecan Muffins

I have had a gazillion requests for this recipe.

  • 1/2 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 eggs, beaten

Mix all ingredients.  Bake in greased miniature muffin pan in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.  Do not bake longer than 15 minutes.  Makes 24 to 30 muffins.

Note:  Cool slightly before removing from pan.  Don’t let them cool completely in pan as they will stick.

Insanely Good Waffles


Insanely Good Waffles

These waffles are, by far, the best, yummiest waffles I have ever eaten.

  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 c. buttermilk
  • 2/3 c. vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

In medium bowl, combine first five ingredients, mix well.  Add rest of ingredients and mix well.  Let batter sit for 30 minutes.

Preheat waffle iron.  Do not use non-stick spray on waffle iron; the oil in the batter will allow the waffle to release easily.  Follow the directions on your waffle iron to cook the waffles.  Serve immediately with butter and syrup.
