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!
First of all, let me just say these will fill your house with the most delightful aroma! The recipe made 12 tasty muffins for me. I did make some changes, I used half whole wheat flour and half white, 1/4 cup butter and (accidentally) 1/2 cup of applesauce. Meant to put 1/4 cup applesauce like another reviewer suggested but they came out great despite my mistake; you couldn't even tell there was applesauce in them. I also was out of white sugar so I used brown. I think I will put 1 1/2 teaspoons of all the spices next like others suggested, as I wanted a hint more spice. I've been trying out different buttermilk muffin recipes and this one wins hands down. Thanks Lvs2Cook!
Followed the recipe exactly & it's ever so good! I made two smallish loaves instead of muffins, no nuts or raisins. Actually, I didn't have enough buttermilk, so I topped up the cup with regular (1%) milk & added some lemon juice. I would've tried the applesauce in place of the butter, but my husband apparently ate all of my applesauce. Next time, I guess. I think I will be making this regularly. Thanks!
These were really tasty, but a bit heavy on the spices for me. I guess it's a matter of personal taste- next time I make them I might cut the nutmeg and cloves in half. But they were very good- and I used the raisins, they worked well with the flavor. Thanks! I will definitely make these again!
These are wonderful! I omitted the raisins and used walnuts instead of pecans. Otherwise, I followed the recipe and had no problems. GREAT one here! Thanks for sharing :)
