  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

These were tasty, satisfying muffins. I changed the recipe as submitted just a little bit. I added 1/2 teaspoon of maple extract in with the liquid ingredients to boost the maple flavor. Instead of sour cream, I used vanilla yogurt - just because that's what I had on hand. For as good as these muffins are, I'd urge you check another recipe on the site called Maple Buttercream Muffins which might be a just a little bit better than this one. (The recipe on this page was submitted in 2002. It was tested and photographed in May 2014.)

For the topping: combine all topping ingredients, cut in butter til crumbly. Sprinkle over batter.

Bake at 400 degrees for 16 to 20 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
