  • 1 cup brown sugar I used light
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans then I left a few halves for topping
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 large eggs room temperature


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease your muffin tin and set aside.
  • In a bowl you will want to add your melted butter and brown sugar together and mix until it is creamed.
  • Slowly incorporate the room temperature eggs, and then add in your flour a little at a time until it is incorporated.
  • Fold in almost all the chopped pecans. I left 12 halves alone to top each muffin once they were done being cooked. Spoon your muffin cups 3/4 the way full of pecan muffin batter.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the muffins are fully cooked. Use a toothpick to stick in and make sure no wet batter comes out when you pull the toothpick out.
  • Once done place on a cooling rack and allow it to cool 5 minutes. THen use a knife to run around the edge of each muffin and carefully remove muffins from the pan.
