Tuesdays With Dorie: Allspice Crumb Muffins


This week's pick for Tuesdays With Dorie, chosen by Kayte of Grandma's Kitchen Table, is Allspice Crumb Muffins. There's not a lot of mystery to this recipe - it's exactly how it sounds. It's a simple allspice-flavoured muffin with a crumb topping. Sounds pretty run-of-the-mill, right?

Well, it is and it isn't. It's not an exciting recipe. But it is made entirely of pantry staples, a breeze to throw together, and impossibly delicious. I'll take that over exciting but complicated any day.

This muffin is seriously moist and delicious, and makes a great snack or quick breakfast. I'm thinking of adding a bit of whole wheat flour next time to up the nutrition-factor. But the crumb topping? Oh, the crumb topping. Sweet, (all)spicy, perfectly crumbly and buttery. It was perfection. My fiance lamented that it made the muffin itself seem tame by comparison, but I beg to differ.


Allspice Crumb Muffins are just wonderful. Thank you, Dorie, for such a fantastic recipe. And thank you, Kayte, for this pick! I appreciated making something that didn't require me to rush out and buy ingredients. It made it so easy to bake it while in the midst of packing for the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and writing essays. Click here for the recipe.

I'm always thinking of adding whole wheat flour, but chicken out last minute in case I might end up with a weird texture. Your crumb topping looks really good!

The muffins look lovely, such a nice simple treat. I recommend the whole wheat flour next time, I enjoyed the flavor with spices.

Wow Kait, you make these muffins sound absolutely heavenly- I think they're going on my "must-try" list! They do look absolutely delicious- what a perfect way to start the day!

Hope you're doing well, and not stressing too much with all your essay writing. Oh, and Happy Canadian Thanksgiving (I didn't know it was so early in the fall season). I hope you have lots of fun and spend some time relaxing with your loved ones- have a wonderful holiday.

Hope to hear from you soon :)

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Howdy

I just joined this good site. Loads of individuals have added so many good things here. Please accept my little contribution towards community. I would like to share some [url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you need to know how to lose 10 lbs in a calendar week, you are believably not looking for a general dieting and work out plan. You can lose weight with a regular diet and work out plan, Still this requires a lot of time doing intense cardio drills and adhering a strict diet. Here I will outline the exact steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a week.

1. Keep Distance from all deep-fried foods for the week
2. Drink In an 8oz glass of grapefruit with breakfast every day. (this accelerates up your metabolism)
3. Eat Up limited portions (stop consuming when you are full)
4. If you are eating 3 large a meals a day, eat up 5-6 smaller meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Do not eat anything after 9pm. Its good to eat before 9 P.M. so that our body gets proper time to burn calories before sleep.
6. Proper sleep is necessary everyday.. Not getting plenty rest causes been verified to be a major factor to the body putting up excess fat.
7. Utilize a body/colon cleanse for the 7 days. This will get rid of excessive fat stored around the stomach area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that makes you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I suggest you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is proven to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those mens/womens who wish to burn fat quickly, avoid alcoholic drink.
