It took no time to whip these muffins up. I got to use some more of the nutmeg I won from Sarah Kramer. The batter was so light and fluffy when I was spooning it into the muffin cups, I couldn't wait for for them to bake. After about 10 minutes the spicy smell was all through my kitchen.
A while ago, Jim got a bag of coffee from a customer as a tip. (Yes, strange I know. He gets some odd things sometimes. Actually, the nutmeg I spoke of above was a tip to Sarah's husband, Gerry.) Anyhow, the coffee was organic, shade grown beans from Starbucks. I'm not usually a big fan of Starbucks coffee, but grinding fresh beans was so appealing this morning.
It actually didn't taste too bad. But when I had it with the muffins, it was much better.
These turned out fantastic! They were moist and quite light for a muffin, and not all sicky sweet like a muffin you'd buy at a coffee shop. I put half of the batch in the freezer to supply me with grab and go breakfasts next week. Thanks Dreena for a fabulous recipe!
