Cinnamon Pecan Muffins

This month I wanted to share a very Autumn recipe for you. So I dug into my pantry and grabbed some pecans, cinnamon, caramel and vanilla extracts and some cane syrup.

I use Steen’s syrup which is very Southern. But you can use any type syrup you like. Such as maple, dark corn, golden syrup or even thinned molasses (light type). Even honey will do. They will just have some slight flavor changes.

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever seen caramel extract but it sounds like a wonderful thing to have on hand. Bet these smelled fabulous as they baked! Love the drizzle of syrup and extra pecans.

    • I’ve seen it in Adam’s extracts, Watkin’s and Dr. Oetker. If you are across the pond right now maybe you can find the Oetker’s. Or maybe a caramel coffee syrup but watch the liquid total if you add more. It does add an exceptional aroma.
