For this week's TWD post, Kayte of Grandma's Kitchen Table picked Allspice Crumb Muffins. As if I haven't mentioned it before, I love the tastes and smells of fall. These muffins were no exception. They came together easily and make a great grab-and-go breakfast. I've never used allspice before - it's said to be like a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. There is definitely a savory, peppery taste to it. It was a nice contrast to the light and fluffy muffin. My fabulous taste tester, Mr. QC, loves pepper (the man puts it on everything... and heavy-handed is a bit of an understatement) so he really enjoyed these. Some of the other bakers had trouble with the crumble topping sliding off the muffins. Mine slid into the middle and sunk a little bit, but overall they held together pretty well.
Yum! Be sure to check out Kayte's blog for the recipe!
