100 g butter (softened)*
1.5 dl (⅔ c) milk

5. Add the butter, the milk, and the vanilla.
6. Add the dry ingredients, a little at a time, and mix until just incorporated.
7. Stir in the chopped walnuts.
8. Spoon mixture into the muffin pan, filling each cup about ¾ full.

    They look great! My mum added walnuts to every cake she made! If it didn’t have some sort of nuts in it she wouldn’t even look at it! These are perfect! I’m going to make them just for her!
