TWD - Allspice Crumb Muffins
I know nothing about allspice and so I was worried about these muffins. Specifically, would anyone eat them? I don't like to waste food. These seemed iffy. Should I add berries? Raisins? Nuts?
I put these off until yesterday. I have a house full of visitors for the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. I figured I could slip a plate of these on the table and someone would eat them, politely, if not with gusto.
Well, shame on me for doubting Dorie. These are lovely, buttery with a hint of delicate spice. The streusel topping is a crunchy bonus. All the guests were delighted. I will certainly make them again.
Many thanks to Kayte at Grandma's Kitchen Table for choosing Allspice Crumb Muffins. Please check out her blog for the recipe and some lovely photos!
