Tuesdays with Dorie: Allspice Crumb Muffins

Erin of Prudence Pennywise (great blog!) selected Sweet Potato Biscuits for her week at TWD. When I first heard of these, i knew I wanted to have them with a roasted chicken dinner. Sweet potatoes/yams are a big weakness in our family, yay for Thanksgiving coming soon!!

What am I thinking? Did you see what I did? I'm sitting here writing this week's TWD muffin post, thinking of next week's* TWD and started writing it! But then went right into the muffin post as below! Silly!! I think because I am making them for dinner tonight, I have them on the brain! lol

This week's TWD comes from Kayte of Grandma’s Kitchen Table, Allspice Crumb Muffins. You'll want to check out her blog for this recipe!

I wasn't sure if I wanted to make these or not. I am not a huge fan of warm spices. Being such an easy recipe, with everything already in the cupboards, I decided why not? I whipped these up for breakfast one morning, it's such an easy recipe. The Allspice was great in these, not overpowering at all. I added the lemon zest, but you'd never know it, I couldn't taste it. Since I used my ice cream scooper to scoop the batter into the muffin pan, I got only 10 instead of the 12 she mentioned. Well, next time I'll scoop them smaller because they overflowed. I had lots of crumb topping left over too, so into the freezer the leftovers went for another muffin morning. Like I said, these are great! I will be making them again. Maybe next time I'll add in some chopped pecans! They reminded me so much of another favorite morning treat I make, these Sugar Doughnut Muffins!

Hee hee! Glad I'm not the only one who does things like that!

Your muffins look fabulous! Isn't that streusel topping the best?
