Pecan Apple Cider Muffins

My gal was having a craving for a cider doughnut (made those). I on the other hand love muffins. I used my standard muffin recipe and added the apple cider touch. Let’s make some Pecan topped Apple Cider Muffins. They are very good.

4 cups apple cider

1/3 cup Buttermilk

2 cups pecan halves

1 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon,

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

6 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Heat apple cider in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 2 cup, about 40 minutes. Let cool completely.

In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, nutmeg and  cinnamon.

In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together butter, eggs , buttermilk and apple cider.

Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist and batter like cover and place into the refrigerator until chilled, about 1 hour. 

Use a nice super sized muffin pan with liners. Fill each cup to the top and place a nice amount of pecan halves on top.

Bake in pre-heated 350F oven, 30-40 min

Serve warm.
