Eggnog Muffin Tops #MuffinMonday


Earlier in the year I saw a post from one of my favorite bloggers - Wendy at A Day in the Life on the Farm - and I realized that they've been having a muffin party for years without me. LOL. I emailed the host, Stacy of Food Lust People Love and got the scoop: "...last Monday of the month and no themes. We've been baking together since August 2015! Only one rule, you must use the muffin method (folding wet ingredients with dry - no creaming butter and sugar, etc.) to bake muffins."

I've been happily joining in for months now. This month is the last Muffin Monday of 2020! Here's the muffin line-up...

Ingredients

After we did an eggnog taste test, back in 2017, we have our favorites. The winner was Humboldt! And we always have a carton of eggnog in the fridge throughout the holidays.


  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup eggnog (use your favorite!)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon rum or other liqueur (eggnog typically requires rum, I had a coffee liqueur on the counter!)

Procedure
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease your  muffin hollows or use paper liners. I only have 4 of the muffin top molds, so I used 6 ramekins as well.

In a medium large mixing bowl, stir together all of the ingredients until just moistened. The batter will be thick. Spoon batter into your molds until they are approximately three-quarters of the way full; they will rise!

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes - until golden brown and nicely risen. A wooden toothpick inserted in centers should come out clean. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups; serve warm.

And just in case you want to order your own adorable muffin molds, I'm including an affiliate link below. We love them!

  1. Eggnog was added to our family shopping list the week before Christmas and I searched the supermarket for some. I finally found just one kind, Borden's, in the refrigerator section. How did you find so many to try?! Clearly my store is inferior to yours! P.S. Lovely muffins!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
