How to Make Baklava Muffins

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan.

    Mix all filling ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • 2In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar. Set aside.

    In a large wide mouth measuring cup or small bowl, whisk together the egg, melted butter, and buttermilk.
  • 3Make a well in the dry ingredients, pour in the liquid ingredients, and mix lightly and gently, remembering to keep it bumpy rather than making it smooth, otherwise muffins will be heavy.
    Fill muffin cups 1/3 full, add scant tablespoon of filling, then cover with more muffin mixture until 2/3 full.
  • 4Bake for 15 minutes. Remove muffins from pan to a wire rack and drizzle with honey.
