Eggnog Coffee Cake Muffins

I had never had eggnog prior to this past holiday season. I'm still not sure that I like it, but after buying eggnog for my Gingerbread Eggnong Cupcakes, I had to find something else to do with my eggnog. This recipe from Pinterest sounded like a delicious breakfast idea. These muffins were sweet, but not too sweet and definitely felt festive.
yield: 10 muffins or 30 mini muffins

for streusel
½C all-purpose flour
½C brown sugar
¾ tsp cinnamon
⅛ tsp ground nutmeg
5 tbs butter, cut into small pieces

for muffins
2C all-pupose flour
½C sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
⅛ tsp ground nutmeg
½ tsp salt
1C eggnog
1 egg, room temperature
5 tbs butter, melted and cooled
1 tsp vanilla extract

for eggnog glaze
1C powdered sugar
3 tbs eggnog
pinch of nutmeg

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line a muffin pan with paper liners or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. for streusel: In a small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  4. Add butter and mix together with your (clean!) fingers until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  5. for muffins: In a large bowl or stand mixer, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggnog, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  7. On low speed, slowly add liquid mixture to flour mixture.
  8. Mix until just combined.
  9. Fill muffin cups ⅔ full.
  10. Top batter with streusel.
  11. Bake muffins for 12 minutes (mini) or 20 minutes (regular), until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  12. Remove from oven and let cool.
  13. for eggnog glaze: In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, eggnog, and nutmeg.
  14. Whisk until smooth.
  15. Drizzle glaze over muffins.
