The muffins were tasty, but I only got about 16 muffins from this recipe. Maybe my muffin cups were a bit larger than hers were. However, my family was disappointed with the muffins lack of moistness. I noticed in looking at other recipes these have quite a bit more flour than others. I am still experimenting with other chocolate buttermilk muffin recipes to find a good one. Just wanted to share. Maybe cutting back on the flour or increase the buttermilk to add to the moistness?
