Nigella's Baklava Muffins

by Divine Domesticity on December 13th, 2008

I made these Baklava Muffins a few years ago and remember them as being comforting and delicious. My husband went a little wild over them, and ended up eating the majority of the batch. For me, they were very good, not great, but that was just my personal taste. If you are a baklava fan, give them a try.

Nigella's Baklava Muffins
Recipe doesn't specify how many muffins it yields, if I remember correctly it was in the 12-15 range

Filling
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter, melted

Muffins
1 cup flour
7 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons buttermilk

Topping
1/2 cup honey

1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Mix all the filling ingredients together in a small bowl, set aside.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar. Mix the egg, melted butter and buttermilk.

3. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add gently mix in the wet ingredients. Fill 12 miffin cups 1/3 full, add a scant tablespoon of filling, cover with more muffin mixture until 2/3 full. Sprinkle any remaining filling on top of the muffins. Bake for 15 minutes.

4. Put the muffins onto a rack to cool and drizzle with honey (it may be easier to drizzle the honey if it has been warmed first).
