Recipe for Eggnog Muffins:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup eggnog
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
1 recipe Nutmeg-Streusel Topping
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg or 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups or line with paper bake cups; set aside. In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and nutmeg. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; set aside.
In another bowl combine eggs, eggnog, butter, vanilla, and rum extract. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each two-thirds full. Sprinkle Nutmeg-Streusel Topping over muffin batter in cups.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden and a wooden toothpick inserted into centers comes out clean. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups; serve warm.
In a small bowl stir together all-purpose flour, sugar, and nutmeg. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
These eggnog muffins are perfect for sharing with family and friends during the holiday season. They can be enjoyed as breakfast, dessert, or a sweet snack to brighten up any winter day. Don’t be surprised if these muffins become a new holiday tradition in your household!
