eggnog streusel muffins

It IS officially Christmas. 12:21 AM. Santa’s around here somewhere. But before we go to sleep, I wanted to leave you guys with a little festive breakfast recipe to fit the, well, festive spirit.

I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and it’s filled with joy and happiness.

eggnog streusel muffins
1/2 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup natural cane sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups egg nog

Preheat oven to 425º. Butter and flour a 12 count muffin pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat for several minutes until smooth. Beat in the baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. Add the flour and egg nog alternately to the butter mixture, starting and ending with the flour and making sure everything is combined in between additions.  Spoon the batter evenly in the greased muffin pan.

streusel topping
1/2 cup natural brown sugar
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
2 tsp egg nog
3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Stir together all ingredients until just crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over unbaked muffins.

Bake the muffins for 20 minutes until light golden brown. Serve warm.

“…radiant beams from Thy holy face with the dawn of redeeming grace…”
