Eggnog Muffins

Eggnog Muffins

I seem to be having trouble with my RSS feed updating in Google Reader since I switched to my new site.  Some people see the updates, others do not.  So make sure to update while you are here, you don’t want to miss anything :)   Also don’t forget to enter the American Express $100 giveaway!

If you follow me on Facebook you may recall that I have never tried Eggnog.  The stuff scares me!  I don’t like milk, I don’t like eggs, it is super thick….scary!  But there are so many amazing sounding recipes that use eggnog, that I was forced to buy a carton of the stuff.  I had to start small though, and go with something I like.  Muffins.  Saturday morning I broke out the eggnog and went to work!  The muffins were great.  You can taste the nutmeg for sure.  As for much more eggnog flavor, I don’t know, I still haven’t tasted it.  I tricked my 6 year old into trying it, and he was NOT a fan.  He loved the muffins though!  I believe his quote was “good thing the muffins are way better than THAT!”

This would be terrific for your Holiday Brunch, Christmas Eve breakfast, or just to snack on. The original recipe had a struesel on top, which I am sure would be wonderful.  I was trying to cut a few calories (I know, shame!), so I just left it off.  Note: My high altitude adjustments are in parenthesis.

  1. Eggnog muffins?!?! Brilliant! I love this. I’m going to the store right now to get the stuff to make these. Thanks!

  2. I have to admit that while I do like eggnog, the extra-thickness that the store bought versions have gets to me after a few sips. Home made is much, much better. The muffins, however, those look like I could eat several…ok, maybe the whole batch, before even contemplating whether it was too much.

    Merry Christmas!
