  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl; mix in walnuts.

  • Combine eggnog, melted butter, rum, egg, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl; stir into flour mixture until just moistened, forming a lumpy batter.

  • Pour batter into prepared muffin cups and bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

I used walnuts for this recipe, but any variety of nuts can be used. Raisins (1/2 cup) can also be used.

Substitute water for the rum, if desired.

On day 1 the taste was a little bland but the next morning the egg nog flavor really came through. Definitely a make-ahead which makes it handy for the Xmas season. Read More

A great way to use up the eggnog at the end of the season. I just made a few minor changes: substituted one cup of the flour with whole wheat flour and added a teaspoon more of baking powder; used one small very ripe banana because I had it and added enough oil to make 1/3 cup; substituted pumpkin pie spice because I had that and no nutmeg; used a little less sugar than called for. Then I made mini muffins so I could take them to work and share with the whole office. Everyone loved them! Read More
