Ingredients

For the Streusel:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose l flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into small pieces

For the muffins:

  • 2 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the eggnog glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons eggnog
  • Pinch of nutmeg

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with paper liners or spray with cooking spray. The recipe makes 10 muffins. Set aside.
  • First make the streusel topping. In a small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add the butter and rub together with your fingers until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine eggnog, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Don't over mix.
  • Place 1 tablespoon of muffin batter in each prepared muffin cup. Top with 1 teaspoon of streusel. Add more batter to cover the streusel, about a heaping teaspoon. Top muffins with remaining streusel.
  • Bake muffins for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let muffins cool to room temperature.
  • While the muffins are cooking, make the eggnog glaze. In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, eggnog, and pinch of nutmeg. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle glaze over the muffins. Serve and enjoy!
