Tuesdays With Dorie: Allspice Crumb Muffins


This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie was Allspice Crumb Muffins, chosen by Grandma’s Kitchen Table.


I’m always glad to have a reason to use my allspice, and I was especially excited to try this recipe. It’s been a while since I’ve made muffins, and since tonight’s dessert night for the fam it seemed perfect.


Sadly, I wasn’t terribly impressed with them. Should I not admit that? The only part I found that I liked were the tops, but even those looked uneven and weird (thankfully they tasted fine!). The tops actually came clean off a couple of them when I tried to carefully remove them from the pan after cooling for a few minutes.


The muffins themselves seemed bland, though they were soft. They came out of the pan greasy as can be too, which I don’t think I’ve ever had happen with muffins before.


I patted the struesel topping down just like the recipe said to, and though even the picture in the cookbook showed the tops rise, mine seemed to go the extra mile.
