Ingredients

Scale

Apricot Pecan Muffins:

  • 1 1/3 cup Flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/4 cup Pecans, chopped finely and toasted
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 6 Tbsp Butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Chopped Dried Apricots

For Streusel:

  • 3 Tbsp Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup Pecans

Instructions

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.

For Streusal Topping:

In a mini food processor, combine all ingredients and pulse approximately 4 times to combine into a streusel mixture. Set aside or in the fridge until ready to use.

For Muffins:

In one bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.

In mini food processor, combine pecans and sugar and pulse to combine until it resembles wet sand. Four or fives pulses.  Add this mixture to another mixing bowl. Whisk in eggs, melted butter, and milk. Pour flour mixture into this and fold to combine.

Fold in chopped apricots until just mixed together.

LET MIXTURE REST FOR 30 MINUTES. THIS IS A MUST! MUFFINS WILL NOT DOME PROPERLY IF THEY DO NOT REST.

Pour into greased muffin pan. Sprinkle with streusel topping. Bake for 17-18 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool in muffin tin for 5 minutes before removing. Let cool completely before serving.
