This recipe comes from the Company's Coming "Muffins & More" cookbook. We have been making these muffins for years - my Dad's favourite. I always double all the indredients EXCEPT for the brown sugar & molasses (to make them a little healthier) - you don't miss the added sweetness at all. I never have buttermilk on hand, so sour the milk by using a Tblsp. of vinegar & adding milk to make 1 1/2 cups. I bake @ 325 degrees just until done - don't over cook!!! The time depends on how big the muffins are - but approx. 20 - 25 min.
