Gourmet Nutmeg Muffins

Recipe by Bliss

I believe i got these from Gourmet Magazine years ago. They are not a sweet muffin and perfect for breakfast with some jam/jellly.

Never fear....even though this batter is thinner than most muffin batters, the muffins turned out to be tender, light and absolutely delicious for those of us who like nutmeg! My nutmeg grater has an attitude regarding my fingers, but does a great job with the nutmeg. Once I discovered the muffins need to rest for 4-5 minutes after coming out of the oven, they came out of the sprayed muffin pan and were picture perfect. The only change I made was in using evaporated milk, since I didn't have any cream. Thanks, MarieAlice, for a recipe I'll use often.
