"These were so delicious. I will be making these again! I agree with some of the reviewers about doubling the nutmeg. It was a little light otherwise."

"I usually double the nutmeg in the muffins to give them more flavor. They are easy to overbake because the tops don't get as brown as muffins usually do. Contrary to most muffins, they are even better the next day."

"I made these for a catering event. They were good, but I may have overbaked them (since I was multi-tasking!). They seemed a little dry. So, I will try them again and bake them for a little less time."

"This wasn't what I expected. I wanted more of the creamy flavor along with the spices. It was under-flavored."

Reviewed Jan. 2, 2013

"I followed the recipe using my own eggnog. The muffins were dense and poor tasting. I would never make this again"
