1/2 tsp. nutmeg
4 eggs

The mini muffins will cook fairly quickly. They will likely be done in 10-15 minutes, so at 10 minutes test with a toothpick. If you insert a toothpick and it is clean when you remove it, then they are done. Regular size muffins, will take 15-20 minutes. A 9 x 13 pan will take about 40-50 minutes 3 layers in separate cake pans will take about 30-35 minutes A bread pan will likely take 45-60 minutes. These times are just guidelines because ovens vary so much. Test with a toothpick early to make sure that you do not overcook these.
