I made these coffee cake muffins for my partner who requested them for his birthday. These are slightly more wholesome as I have substituted applesauce for half of the butter needed.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Line two 12-cup muffin tins with paper liners.
Place pecans on the prepared baking sheet.
Roast in the preheated oven until fragrant, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl with brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix until coated; set aside.
Meanwhile, sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Mix milk, vanilla extract, and coffee granules together in another bowl.
Combine sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl; beat with an electric mixer until sugar granules have dissolved and mixture is smooth and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating briefly after each addition. Beat in applesauce until smooth and creamy. Add flour mixture in 2 batches, alternating with milk mixture, beating only until incorporated.
Spread 1 tablespoon batter into each prepared cupcake liner, making sure it covers the bottom. Add 1/2 tablespoon of pecan filling on top of each. Cover with remaining batter and top with remaining filling.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 18 to 25 minutes. Cool in the tins for 10 minutes before putting onto cooling racks to cool completely.

The best flavour of the flour could make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as white bread.
To made this in a dough , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can work it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
