Yummm! These muffins are so good, they (almost) make me eager to get out of bed in the morning :) I added 1/2 cup pecans and 1 tsp. orange extract just because I liked the added flavor. These also freeze well. Thanks for another great recipe, Mirjam!

FINALLY, I got around to making these this evening. We received a phone call that one of our very old family friend wanted to pay a visit tomorrow - after MONTHS! I was very excited, and I immediately decided to make these muffins. I substituted the butter with margarine and since I don't have nutmeg, I doubled the quantity of cinnamon. I made the buttermilk at home, by taking 1 tbsp less to 1/2 cup of milk(I used Rainbow evaporated milk as I ran out of fresh milk) in a cup and adding 1 tbsp. of lemon juice to it and then allowing it to sit for 5 minutes before using it in the recipe. I was making the batter for this, the time was 10pm when the doorbell rang, and when I opened it, some "unexpected guests" were right before my eyes! LOL. So, I made these muffins, and served them, at 10:30pm! They went very well, and, I am now going to make these all over again(this time I'll remember to double the recipe). Thank YOU for the recipe!

My husband and I tried this recipe last night, I chose it because all the ingredients were common things I had in the kitchen. Except for the buttermilk, I had milk and lemon juice so I made it. I'm very happy to have learned how to make the buttermilk. I followed the recipe perfectly but it turned out a little runny, I think it was the pineapples, I added about 1/2 cup of walnuts to the batter. I had much more than 12 muffins though, I poured the rest into a loaf pan and baked it about 15 minutes longer than the muffins. They were a little sticky on the bottom and didnt rise very well when finished. I think I will not use pineapple next time maybe I'll try a type of berry instead. All in all I was very happy with this recipe. I will definetely use it again because it's easy and includes very basic ingredients. I will recommend it to others as well. LTG444
