Cooking Notes:

Melt the butter first so it gets back to near room temperature before you use it.

To get the most flavor from the pecans, toast them in a frying pan until fragrant. Also let those cool before using.

If you don't have self-rising flour, you can use the same amount of all-purpose flour with 2 teaspoons of baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon salt mixed into it.

The ingredients are simple but the flavor of the finished muffins is wonderful. Pecans and butter were meant to be together.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank mnamullins for this recipe.

These were delicious. I used all purpose flour and added 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon baking soda. -teedofftiffy

It uses self rising flour, so doesn't need baking powder. A person could use all purpose flour though and just add the sale and leavening to it. That would work too. This looks like a GREAT recipe!

This recipe is missing baking powder so that the muffins rise a little - they needed it.
