I am not a lover of eggnog. At least not drinking it–I do like to use it in cooking; and this is one of my favorite recipes. The muffins are truly light and fluffy with a wonderful nutmeggy taste. The topping is crunchy, and the muffin itself reminds of those snowball treats I used to get when I was a kid–just in appearance, not at all in taste. Definitely use a mixer for the dough, and the recipe divides in half easily.
Don’t worry if you don’t have the eggnog flavoring, vanilla works just as well. Enjoy!
