  • Beat butter with an electric mixer at medium speed in a large bowl until creamy. Beat 1/2 cup sugar into the butter until fully incorporated. Beat one egg into the butter mixture until fully incorporated before beating second egg into the mixture.

  • Stir flour, baking powder, salt, cloves, and nutmeg together in a separate bowl. Mix milk and 3 tablespoons rum in a third bowl.

  • Alternately add small amounts of the flour mixture and the milk mixture to the butter mixture while beating on Low speed, mixing each addition until just incorporated into a batter. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups to about 3/4 full.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove muffins immediately from the cups to cool on a wire rack.

  • Stir remaining rum and 3 tablespoons sugar together in a small saucepan over low heat; cook, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves, 3 to 5 minutes. Brush rum mixture onto the tops of the warm muffins.

The batter was very thick. Flavor was very mild nearly bland. They were dry even with the rum and sugar on top. Read More
