How to make it
- Prepare a 12 muffin tin by buttering and dusting it with flour or by inserting muffin papers in the cups.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Whisk dry ingredients together until thoroughly mixed.
- Whisk wet ingredients together until thoroughly mixed.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix only until combined. (DO NOT OVER BEAT. Over beating can cause muffins to toughen and have air tunnels.)
- Bake for 25 minutes. Begin checking the muffins after 20 minutes. Every oven is different.
- Muffins could take up to 30 minutes.
- Serve warm or at room temperature.
- These are best served when still warm.
- OPTIONAL: Mix about 2 cups of powdered sugar with just enough eggnog to make a glaze. Pour glaze on muffins a few minutes before serving..
