Class Recipes

Servings: Makes 12 standard-size muffins, or 6 jumbo muffins



    Muffin batter:
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup butter, plus extra to prepare pan
  • 3 eggs
  • 2½ cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¾ cup plus 1 Tbsp. buttermilk
    Nut topping:
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg


Preheat oven to 375°F.

For the batter: In a mixing bowl, cream the sugar and butter together with an electric mixer. When thoroughly mixed, add eggs and beat one more minute.

Sift the flour into a separate bowl together with the baking soda, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

Add flour and buttermilk to the first mixture. Mix at low speed until smooth. To avoid lumps in the batter, add the wet and dry ingredients alternately, in small amounts.

For the nut topping: Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. The nuts should be very finely chopped.

Grease muffin tins with additional butter. (You can also use paper baking cups.) Fill each cup ¾ full of batter. Add a full rounded tablespoon of nut topping on top of the batter in each cup. Bake immediately or the topping will sink to the bottom of the muffin.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown. A wooden toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffin should come out dry.


Equipment needed: Measuring cups and spoons, Mixing bowls, Electric mixer, Whisk, Knife, Muffin tins, Spoon.
