Coffee ... Muffins!?

Earlier today someone I know was looking for a recipe she had lost that was at least 10 years old. She said it had something to do with a spice and coffee break and it was a muffin. I searched Google and found this one - and guess what? It was the one she needed! It sounded really good so I wanted to add it here to share as well. It's a Carnation recipe from at least 10 years ago... that's all I know about it!

Coffee-Break Spice Muffins

4 tsp. of Nescafe`instant coffee
1 cup Carnation evaporated skim milk
2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1-½ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
¼ tsp. salt
½ cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup butter, melted &cooled
1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon

In 1-cup microwaveable glass measure, combine coffee granules and ¼ cup of the evaporated milk. Microwave on high, stirring once, until coffee is almost completely dissolved. Add remaining milk; let cool. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking
powder, cinnamon, nutmeg & salt. Add pecans & chocolate chips; toss together. Stir in melted butter, egg & coffee mixture all at once until dry ingredients are just moistened. Divide equally among 12 greased muffin cups.

TOPPING: In small bowl, combine sugar & cinnamon. Spoon ¼ tsp. over each muffin.

Bake in 350° F. (180° C) oven for 20-25 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely.

Makes 12 muffins.
