1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, chopped into small pieces
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups self-rising flour, sifted
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup sour cream
2/3 cup chopped pecns
1/2 tsp groud cinnamon
1 tbs plus 1 tsp light brown sugar
•In a food processor with the stainless-steel blade, combine the sugar, butter, vanilla, eggs, flour, baking soda, and sour cream. Process until smooth, 1/2 minutes. I use a pastry cutter instead.
•Distribute half the batter evenly among the cups of a greased muffin pan.
•In a small bowl, combine the pecans, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Sprinkle half over the batter in the pan. Top with remaining batter, then sprinkle with the remaining pecan mixture.
•Bake until the cupcakes spring back when lightly touched, 20-25 minutes. Cook in the pan for 5 minutes. Serve warm, or transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Serving Size: Makes 6, 1-cup cupcakes, but I make 12, 2/3 cup cupcakes.
