Fresh and Fragrant Eggnog Muffins


 Early this morning I made up a batch of these beautiful muffins ~ and oh how I wish you could have smelled my kitchen as they baked! The recipe (found here) was a new one for me, but it was so easy to follow and produced the most scrumptious results!

I have always been partial to eggnog (the boys and I start looking for it around Halloween!) but I especially enjoy eggnog-flavored baked goods. There's just something about that rich, nutmegy flavor and smell ...

So when I was ordering a gingerbread kit for the boys to make with my mum, I couldn't resist popping a bottle of Eggnog Flavor in my virtual shopping basket. (Btw, it's on sale at the moment - just $4.98 for 1 oz.) So far I have only made the muffins, but I am definitely baking some eggnog-spiked butter cookies before the holidays are over. (I'm thinking sparkly bells and stars for the New Year ...)

This debut batch made its way this morning to the office staff where Earlybird does his therapy, but I plan to make another dozen for Christmas breakfast - I bet they will taste great served along with freshly brewed coffee. :)


Are you baking something new this year?
