I combine the dry ingredients for these muffins the night before baking. In the morning, I add the remaining items, fill the muffin cups and pop them in the oven. Brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans give them coffee cake-like flavor. -Margaret McNeil, Germantown, Tennessee

"These were awesome! I doubled the recipe and otherwise followed the recipe. It made a dozen and a half regular sized muffins. This is a keeper."

"These muffins are fabulous. Everyone just loves them. I make them at least once a month. I sub the pecans with walnuts because I usually bake with them. I also sometimes do almond flavoring. They are the best!!"

"These are a hit with my family. I too put the dry ingredients ready the night before. I use chopped walnuts since some people in my family do not like pecans. These do not last long in my house when I make them. Your house will smell so good when you make these. Perfect for a Saturday/Sunday . I have made this many times, and everyone loves them! The do not last long."

"These were excellent. I put together different ingredients in separate bowls the night before (except for wet) and the next morning it went together easily. I used walnuts because I had no pecans, but it was still DELICIOUS."

"My kids enjoyed these and I found them to be moist but I thought they needed something. Not sure what exactly, maybe vanilla extract in the batter next time."
