Eggnog Muffins

Since I had a little Eggnog leftover from last night's dessert, I went to Pinterest to find ways that I could use it up.  After a quick search I found a yummy looking recipe for Eggnog Muffins.  The original recipe is froma href="http://www.bhg.com/recipe/eggnog-muffins/" target="blank" Better Homes and Garden/a.br /br /So I quickly went back into the kitchen to whip them up. br /br /2 1/4 cups all-purpose flourbr /1 cup sugarbr /2 teaspoons baking powderbr /1/2 teaspoon ground nutmegbr /2 eggs, lightly beatenbr /1 cup eggnogbr /1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooledbr /1 teaspoon vanillabr /1/2 teaspoon rum extractbr /br /1 recipe Nutmeg-Streusel Toppingbr /br /Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups or line with paper bake cups; set aside. In a medium bowl sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and nutmeg; set aside.br /br /In your stand mixer combine eggs, eggnog, butter, vanilla, and rum extract.
