Thanks to Kayte of Grandma’s Kitchen Table who picked these delicious Allspice Crumb Muffins for our Tuesdays with Dorie treat of the week. You can find the recipe here at her site.
While reading through the comments on the TWD site about this recipe I noted a few problems with the crumb topping and thought I would remedy it by adding some more flour, then not thinking it looked right, I added a couple of teaspoons of water to the crumb. I thought I would have nice big crumb tops but I messed up the topping, it was way too heavy and most of it sunk down into my poor muffins. I did end up with one presentable muffin. Hey, one is better than none, right? Ah well, serves me right for messing with Dorie's recipe before I even tried it out as written.
I baked them in a jumbo muffin pan...above and below are the before and after baking shots.
The muffin part was delicious, very tender and flavorful, the topping tasted great too, just too heavy. We are big muffin fans here and I will make these again for sure -- as written :) Thank you Kayte, for a wonderful pick!
