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!

  6. These are deceptively simple and delicious. I planned to add chopped apples, but my kids ate them all before I had a chance. Luckily, the spice was enough all by itself!

  17. Yes, these were awesome! I didn't have all-spice so I made them into cinnamon/nutmeg cupcakes. It was a huge hit with the hubs!
