'Tis the season for eggnog! This classic holiday flavor is one of my favorites, and Marc's, too. (If you're new to this blog, Marc is not only my husband, but also my partner in crime writing.)

|Eggnog Crumb Muffins from |
Holiday Buzz: A Coffeehouse Mystery
|To see the many festive recipes|
featured in Holiday Buzz,
The crumb muffin (above) is a very tasty "from scratch" version. Today's muffin is a quick-and-easy large batch recipe with a cake mix starter and a delicious eggnog glaze. It's just as tender and tasty as the scratch version and just as eggnoggy (yes, I made up that word).
Both muffins are delicious and festive. Whichever way you make them, I hope you will bake them with love and eat them with (holiday) joy!

"eggnoggy" muffins is author
of The Coffeehouse Mysteries
In a saucepan warm 1/2 cup eggnog and 4 tablespoons butter (1/2 stick) over low heat. Do not allow this mixture to boil! If it does, you may get a scorched taste in your glaze. When butter is just melted, stir in (about) 3-1/2 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar. I also like to add in 1/2 teaspoon rum extract. If you really like rum, you may want to increase this amount; if you dislike rum, leave out the extract.
