Source: Unknown
Serves: 24

3 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
2 eggs, beaten, at room temperature
1/2 cup milk, at room temperature
1/2 cup butter, melted

1 cup strawberry preserves

Crumb Topping:
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 cup butter

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Grease muffin cups or line with papers. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and allspice.

In medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, melted butter, and lemon peel; stir in preserves.

Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients; stir just until all dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into muffin cups.

Topping: In a small bowl, combine flour, sugars, and allspice. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle crumb mixture over muffins.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from pan to cool.

Poster's Notes:
These muffins are moist and filled with berry flavor, plus a crumbly spiced topping. They'll definitely get your family's morning off to a good start. Of course, you can use any kind of preserves you choose.
