Coffee Cake Muffins

I combine the dry ingredients for these coffee cake muffins the night before baking. In the morning, I add the remaining items, fill the muffin cups and pop them in the oven. Brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans give them coffee cake-like flavor. —Margaret McNeil, Germantown, Tennessee
