    Starrynews's Note:

    Many of my friends and family members know about my annual quest to use up leftover eggnog during the holidays, so my mom passed on this recipe clipped from Midwest Living that she received from a friend. These got rave reviews (saying it's a keeper!), even from those in the house who don't like eggnog (which is why I always have so much of it leftover from baking - no one will drink it!) The original recipe recommends serving it warm, but we enjoyed them both warm and at room temperature.

      Absolutely lovely muffins, Starry! I did add a 3/4 tsp of cinnamon to the topping, and instead of rum extract, used Princess Cake Emulsion (my audience doesn't drink, and although my rum extract is non-alcoholic, I wasn't sure how the flavour would go over.) These are so pretty and moist! I honestly thought I was puttin on too much topping, but because of how they rise, it was perfect! Thanks for the great recipe! Made for Veggie Swap.

      My husband thought these were good. I thought they looked beautiful and had a great taste but a little on the dense side.
