Muffin Tin


Walnut-Streusel Topping

  • 2 tablespoon All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 tablespoon Finely Chopped Walnuts
  • ¼ cup Brown Sugar
  • teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoon Butter chopped


  • 2-¼ cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar packed
  • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Large Eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ½ cup Butter melted and cooled
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Maple Nutmeg Glaze

  • 2 tablespoon Butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 2 cups Confectioners / Icing / Powdered Sugar
  • 2+ tablespoon Water


Walnut-Streusel Topping:

  • In a small bowl, mix together flour, walnuts, brown sugar, and nutmeg.
  • Use a pastry cutter or two forks to cut in 2 tablespoons butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Set aside.


  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Line 12 muffin cups with liners, or spray with baking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine eggs, milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Add egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture.
  • Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy.)
  • Divide batter between 12 prepared muffin cups, filling each to almost full. Sprinkle streusel topping over muffin batter in cups.
  • Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden and a wooden toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean.
  • Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes, while you make the glaze:

Maple Nutmeg Glaze

  • Whisk together the butter, maple syrup, and nutmeg until smooth.
  • Add about half the powdered sugar, a little at a time.
  • Once half of the powdered sugar is incorporated, add 2 tablespoon of water, whisking until smooth.
  • Add remaining powdered sugar, whisking until smooth. You want it VERY thick, but you can add extra water if you need.
  • Remove muffins from muffin cups; drizzle with glaze, and serve warm!


Note: For a thin drizzle as pictured, heat the glaze in the microwave for about 20 seconds and whisk well.
You'll want to drizzle this immediately, while it's still warmed.
