  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Rumford Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 lg. eggs beaten
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1/3 c. cooking oil
  • 1/3 c. maple syrup
  • 1/2 c. pecans chopped


Grease twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups. In a small bowl, stir together powdered sugar, the 1 tablespoon syrup, and water. Set aside.

In a large bowl stir together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, Rumford Baking Powder, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in the center. In a medium bowl combine egg, milk, cooking oil, and the 1/3 cup syrup. Add to flour mixture all at once. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in nuts.

Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full. Bake in a 400 F oven about 20 minutes or until golden. Transfer muffins from pan to a wire rack. Drizzle powdered sugar mixture over muffins. Cool slightly.
