This is the best flavored muffin! It is a close to Mimi's as I have found. I followed the recipe and it made 12 nice sized muffins. I used walnuts, golden raisins and 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. Thanks for the recipe. Carole in Orlando
What a lovely muffin! I only made a few minor changes. I didn't have any cloves, so I used 1/4 tsp of ginger and I cut the nutmeg back to 1/2 tsp since my daughter doesn't really care for it. The kids said they were excellent. They stayed moist for several days. Thanks for posting!
EXCELLENT! I made a few changes...in an attempt to lighten them up I used 1c skim milk w/1T white vinegar instead of the buttermilk. Instead of 1/2c butter I used 1/4c butter and 1/4c unsweetened applesauce. I'm not a HUGE fan of strong clove or nutmeg flavors - I wanted a muffin with a primarily cinnamon flavor and a hint of nutmeg and cloves, so I adjusted the spices and ended up with 3/4t cloves, 1 1/2t cinnamon, and 1/2t nutmeg. I ended up with 17 muffins....we promptly ate about half of them and the rest are in the freezer for breakfasts. I think next time I make these I'll use all applesauce and omit the butter. Thanks for sharing!
