Maple Syrup Muffins

My good friend Brandi brought these muffins to the hospital for us the night that Logan was born. I think that we managed to eat through the entire batch within two nights. Clearly, these were much better than eating the tasty hospital food ;) They were much enjoyed and very much appreciated! These are super yummy and relatively quick to mix up (must be, since Brandi whipped home from work, mixed up a batch and had them for us at the hospital by maybe 8pm that night!).

The glaze on top is delicious enough that I had to restrain myself from eating it by the spoonful. It'd be great on top of ice cream. Tastes just like sucre à la crème. I'm pretty sure that you could make some and just heat it up in the microwave before pouring it on ice cream.

1/2 C softened margarine
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 C milk
1/2 C white sugar
1 1/4 C flour
3/4 C rolled oats
1/2 C maple syrup

2 tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 C icing sugar
1 tbsp. maple syrup

1. Blend together margarine, sugar and salt. Add other dry ingredients and blend together. Mix in oats.

2. Blend milk and syrup together. Pour over dry ingredients.

3. Bake in 350 degrees Farenheit oven for approximately 20 minutes.

4. Mix glaze ingredients together and spread over top of slightly cooled muffins.

Makes 10-12 muffins.

Freezer-friendly without glaze.
