      I was looking for a basic muffin recipe I could easily convert to gluten-free and this was it! Instead of milk, I used 2 Tbsp buttermilk powder and 1 cup water. It's just a personal preference for buttermilk in my baking and it seems to help gluten-free baking stay more moist. I can't wait to use this as a spring board to exciting combos of fruit and nuts!

      great basic, neutral muffin recipe--I've used it a few times with good results every time. for sweeter muffins, I double the sugar, but otherwise I wouldn't change a thing!
