This muffin mulling spice recipe has a delicious spiced flavor that’s perfect on a cold winter night. This mulling spice infused recipe starts with a gluhwein reduction and uses that in the muffin recipe!


For the Mulling Spice Reduction:

For the Muffins:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs


1. Prepare the Mulling Spice Reduction: In a saucepan, combine red wine and two Boozn Sam’s Glow Cinnamon Mulling Spice infusion kits. Simmer over low heat for 20 – 25 minutes, until reduced by 1/3 to 1/2. Allow the reduction to cool. Toss out the spice bags.

2. Pour yourself a mug of mulling spice wine: You’ve worked hard and earned a reward. Pour yourself a 12 oz mug of gluhwein from the mulling spice reduction you just made. Add a big ‘ol chunk of cinnamon bark, from the Boozn Sam’s infusion kit.

3. Prepare the Muffins: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves.

In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Finally, fold in 1 cup of the cooled Glühwein reduction until evenly incorporated.

4. Bake the Muffins: Spoon the muffin batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about 2/3 full.

Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

5. Serve: Serve the mulling spice muffins.

Enjoy your muffin mulling spice recipe, which combines the warm and spiced flavors of mulled wine!
