    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    These are buttery, not-too-sweet muffins with a nice puffy top and a nip of nutmeg (Kind of like a baked Tom & Jerry!) They're a nice little treat in the morning and take no time at all to put together.

      My muffins came out very dry and while the rum flavor is present, the actual muffins were not very sweet at all, however i will give this 3 stars because the glaze was delicious and added nice sweetness, but i don't think i will make this again. If i do, i will add a lot more sugar.
