English Muffin Baklava

  • Author: Lindsay
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: Nut mixture makes enough for 2-3 servings


Perfectly toasted English muffins get topped with an extra thick, extra chunky crispy-chewy nutty sugary topping. Absolutely heavenly and works for breakfast, snack, or as an after-dinner treat.


Units Scale

Pistachio Walnut Mixture:

  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup pistachios
  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter, softened or melted
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar


  • English muffins
  • Honey
  • Mascarpone cheese


  1. Preheat the broiler – I use the “Low Broil” setting but every oven will be different for which setting works best.
  2. Pulse the nuts in a food processor until finely chopped. Set aside a few spoonfuls of the nuts for topping. Mix the remaining nuts, butter, and brown sugar together in a small bowl.
  3. Toast the English muffins on a baking sheet lined with foil until toasty – about 3 minutes.
  4. Spread English muffins with the nutty butter mixture. Return to the oven, a few inches away from the broiler, for 1 minute or until bubbly and slightly caramelized.
  5. Top with a little baby dollop of mascarpone cheese and give it a gentle swoop to melt it in. Finish with extra nuts and honey. Pour yourself a cup of coffee to go with it. OMG, it’s so good!
