What a gem~these muffins are amazing!!! Perfect texture and I love the subtle flavor of the molasses. Followed recipe other than substituting chopped walnuts for raisins. Will be making these again and again. Thank you for sharing!
These are fabulous! I left out the raisins, and used coconut instead of the buttermilk. These are much more interesting than your standard pumpkin muffin.
