Nutmeg Streusel Muffins

2 cups all purpose flour, divided
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 egg

In a large bowl, combine 1-1/3 cups flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly and reserve 1/2 cup for streusel topping. In the same bowl, add remaining ingredients; stir until just moistened. Spoon into greased muffin pans and sprinkle with reserved streusel mixture.
Bake at 400 degrees for 18 to 22 minutes or until lightly browned.



Notes: I love a good streusel topping so I added a bit more brown sugar and some oats to my reserved portion before sprinkling it on the muffins.

The nutmeg streusel muffins sound and look sublime. I may need to bake these one of these days.

Streusel muffins are the best, it's tough to choose between them and cupcakes :)!
