In crumb we trust



Crumb muffins are hard to resist. Everyone loves the flour/brown sugar/butter combination, and it's difficult not to throw it on top of any baked good -- bread, seasonal fruit, coffee cake: it all works!

Kayte of Grandma's Kitchen Table chose this week's Tuesday's With Dorie assignment: Allspice Crumb Muffins. The batter was so easy and painless to make -- starting them post-morning-workout not only possible, but quite leisurely as well. Allspice was a unique touch to the muffins that isn't seen frequently. My car smelled like I had baked something savory!! The final product was a nice standard muffin with the kick of a bit of lemon zest and spicy fragrance, topped with the aforementioned delicious crumb topping. Although I won't bow to any altars of these muffins, it was satisfying with a cup of coffee and a cold, rainy morning.
