Miller, these were wonderful muffins!!! The recipe made 12 (standard size pan) huge muffins! The crowns were really big--the best I've ever made! They were light, moist, and fluffy, and the topping was a really nice addition. The spices were a great combo, and I'm thinking that you could add chopped apples, or blueberries. This is the kind of muffin I always TRY to make, but the other "bakery style" recipes don't cut it! Thanks for sharing! If you have any others like this, please share those, as well!!!

- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions See How It's Made
- Heat oven to 375°F.
- In a mixing bowl, cream the sugar and butter together with an electric mixer.
- When they are thoroughly mixed, add the eggs and beat for 1 more minute.
- Sift the flour into a separate bowl, together with the baking soda, nutmeg and cinnamon.
- Add the flour and buttermilk to the first mixture, and mix at low speed until smooth.
- To avoid lumps in the batter, add the wet and dry ingredients alternately, in small amounts.
- Make the nut topping by combining all the Nut Topping ingredients together in a small bowl.
- Grease muffin tins with additional butter or margarine, or use paper or foil baking cups.
- Fill each cup ¾ full of batter.
- Add a full rounded tablespoon of the nut topping on top of the batter in each cup.
- Bake immediately, or the topping will sink to the bottom of the muffins, and then you will be mad at yourself – and we don’t want that to happen, do we?.
- Bake at 375°F for 20 to 25 minutes until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out dry.
- (Home ovens’ heat differently from Mimi’s commercial ovens, and so you may need to adjust the temperature and/or the baking time accordingly).
- This recipe yields 12 standard-size muffins, or 6 Jumbo-size muffins.
- If you are using jumbo muffin tins, reduce the oven temperature by 25° and increase the baking time by 5 to 10 minutes.
