I combine the dry ingredients for these 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 cakelike flavor. —Margaret McNeil, Germantown, Tennessee

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, pecans and cinnamon; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, whisk egg, milk and oil until blended. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened.
