Muffins filled with walnuts and cinnamon

Moist, soft cake filled in with cinnamon and walnuts paste that is the shortest description of those delightful muffins. Perfect tea time treat. The recipe comes from 'Muffins sampler' by Jan Siegrist.

Ingredients for  walnut paste:
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 80g chopped walnuts
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp butter
Chop the walnuts. Put them in a small bowl. Then add the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Mix all ingredients together. 
Melt the butter in a sauce pan over the medium heat. Pour the butter into a bowl with dry ingredients and stir them all together. Set the mixture aside.

Ingredients for 12-14 muffins:
  • 200g flour
  • 200g sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 90g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 200 ml milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 180C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

In a bowl put flour, sugar, baking powder and butter. Mix it with your fingers until crumbly. In a measuring jug whisk the egg, add milk and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into a dry ones. Stir until just moist.
Spoon the batter into muffin cups about 1/3 full. Then add about 2 teaspoons of walnut mixture to each cup. Top with remaining batter to fill each cup 2/3 full. Sprinkle the remaining nut mixture over the batter in each cup.
Bake for 20 minutes. When ready keep in the muffin tin for a few minutes then transfer to the wire rack to cool down. Enjoy !
