A crunchy caramel-pecan topping crowns these moist and delicious muffins. Perfect for holiday breakfasts or snacks. I've made these several times but when I made them for this listing photo... I botched up bigtime! They were in the oven beginning to bake when I discovered I left the sugar out of the batter. Urgh------! Tell me if you've never done that! My solution may sound extreme, but I yanked them out of oven, scraped the pecan topping off, dumped dough back into bowl and stirred in the sugar. A bit messy, but it was worth a try. Imagine my surprise when they turned out not perfect, mind you, but absolutely delicious! When I make again I'll check my ingredients carefully and add a proper photo!

    Great save!! LOL! Yes, I'm sure we've all done something similar at one time or another, though my mistakes never seem to turn out as well as yours obviously did!
    These look amazing, and I can't wait to try them. Thanks for sharing!
