"These are delicious! However, I goofed on one ingredient. As I put the pans in the oven I turned around and there sat the buttermilk! Thinking the muffins were ruined I found they were just fine afterall. My husband can't eat just one."
"I will know to double the recipe next time as it didn't make many. They were very good!"
"Excellent recipe; muffins have a nice texture and are very tasty. Muffins could also be served as a cupcake - just drizzle a vanilla icing over them."
"I am from Tigrd, OR despite what it says online (the magazine is right). :-} I've directed some of my friends to see these online and do not want them to miss them because they think this is a different person."
