What about some eggnog muffins for your Christmas breakfast this year?

This is a simple festive muffin recipe, specially if you are an eggnog fan. They are rich and filling, perfect for the holiday season with the pretty icing adding a festive touch! Actually I thought next time instead of baking 12 large muffins, I will divide the batter up into 24 smaller ones, there is always so much to eat during the holidays. Great to be frozen for Christmas breakfast, along with any kind of bacon & eggs.

I made it with whole wheat, but you can use all purpose flour only and they will be not so dense, lighter. Feel free to add some golden raisins, cranberries or apricots (3/4 cup), they will be delicious!

Eggnog festive muffins 

1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour or all purpose flour
1 tbs baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup vegetable oil or shortening (I used shortening)
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup eggnog

Glaze
1/2 cup eggnog
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 to 1 1/2 cup icing sugar

Pre heat oven to 350F.
In a small bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon together. Set aside.
In mixing bowl, beat shortening with granulated sugar until blended and add eggs, one by one. Slowly add in flour mixture and eggnog.
Lightly spray 12 or 24 muffin cups with baking spray and scoop batter 1/2 full. Bake for 13-15 minutes. Cool completely.

For the icing whisk together eggnog, nutmeg and icing sugar. Drizzle the glaze on top of the muffins and allow to set (about 15 minutes).
