  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed (dark or light brown)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 large eggs
  • 11 tbsp . real butter melted, about 1⅓ sticks
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Place 9 cupcake paper liners into regular muffin pan and spray each of the liners with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and pecans until mixed well.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until foamy and then add melted butter.
  5. Stir well.
  6. Combine the egg mixture with the flour mixture.
  7. Stir until moistened.
  8. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups. You will need to fill them to almost full.
  9. There is no leavening agent (like baking powder or baking soda) in these to make them rise.
  10. Bake for about 20-25 minutes (it took closer to the 25 minute mark in my oven).
  11. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Recipe Notes

You can also make these into mini-muffins. Just decrease the cooking time by about 5 minutes or so.
