After skipping out on the pudding (I generally stay away from the pudding-y, custard-y recipes), I was happy to see that Kayte of Grandma’s Kitchen Table chose Allspice Crumb Muffins as this week’s TWD recipe. It was a perfect way to welcome the sort of fall-ish weather that is creeping up on us in Northern Virginia. I say “sort of” and “fall-ish” because it was still 80 something last Friday, and this Friday we are headed for the 40’s. And that, in a nutshell, explains our typical fall weather.
I LOVE the fall and everything about it, even the crazy weather, but especially the colors and the smells and the fact that somehow it all makes me feel like baking. A lot. This is a lucky time of year for my co-workers.
Anyhoo, I really enjoyed these muffins, not to mentioned they smelled heavenly. The only swaps I made were to use 2% milk, and then instead of actually using allspice, I used a hefty (as in more than double the called for amount!) combination of cinnamon and ginger, along with orange zest.
Looking forward to some more fall flavors next week!
