So, Megan, You asked for it -

Thanks for leaving your comment with your requested muffin from the Xmas 2 I made earlier in the week - Just for you we have....
Megan's Xmas Soynog Muffins
Makes 12

1 C Plain Flour
¾ C Almond Meal
¾ C Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
2 ½ t Baking Powder
1 t Baking Soda
½ t Salt
2 T Cornstarch
½ t Cinnamon
¼ t Allspice
1 ¼ C Soynog *
1 t Vanilla
¼ C Oil
¼ C Agave
¼ C Maple Syrup

1 recipe Frothy Nutty Topping - follows

Preheat oven to 375F and prepare the muffin tins.
Whisk together the dry ingredients – flour through allspice – in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl whisk together the remaining ingredients.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix to just combine.
Spoon mix into the prepared tins and top each with some of the topping mix. Gently mix the topping with a little of the top batter to hold it in place as it cooks.
Bake for 25 - 30 minutes until tests done.
Cool in tins for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

Frothy Nutty Topping –

¼ C finely chopped, toasted Almonds
¼ C Almond Meal
¼ C Breadcrumbs
½ t Cinnamon
1 T Oil

In a small bowl mix together all the ingredients for the topping and hold to one side until required.

What do you think? I was aiming for a frothy, heated milky look with the topping.

Carla, excuse my ignorance, what is soynog? I know I decided didn't sound nice (cos of the association to eggnog) but I still don't know what it is...
love Lin

They look totally YUM!
I'll see if I can get Soynog in the UK when I'm there for Christmas.

Oooh - you wanna get yourself an email subscriber in your side bar so as your new posts are emailed to people.
Saves me going on a crazy comment posting spree (Yes I am lazy - I like things to be easy)

Lin, Soynog is Eggnog but made form soy milk. In North America Egg NOg comes in cartons at this time of teh year, as does the soy varieties.

I'll look into a side bar email thingy later today.
