These have a great flavor and texture, but are a bit labor intensive, so they will get made for special occasions. I couldn't find where the ginger syrup should be added so I added it with the buttermilk mixture. Mine spread out on top because I overfilled the tins, because I didn't want to have just 2 more in another tin. I would adjust ingredients down to get 12 muffins instead of 14. But as I said, the flavor was great. I used oat bran. Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.
