Looking for a muffin recipe using buttermilk
I've been using Cook's Illustrated recipe with sour cream as my muffin base. I have a hankering for muffins but no sour cream, only buttermilk. So fellow chowhounders, I'm in search of a delicious muffin recipe that uses buttermilk. Thanks for your help!
if you plug in Cafe Fanny Millet Muffins on Chowhound or possibly even on Google, you'll get a great recipe from the cafe in Berkeley. There are three versions on Chowhound, for something like 3 dozen, 1.5 dozen, or for 9 muffins. I've only used the small one, but I've been making them for a year or so and they are good, light, but with a slight crunch from the millet, and not too sweet, but sweet enough to satisfy that kind of craving. Highly recommend them. My daughter's favorite muffin.
For some reason, I cannot reply to OP..oh, well...here's a very nice recipe from Jane Brody that I will paraphrase...I think that you will enjoy these--have made them a million times over the years:
Raisin Muffins--makes 12 muffins
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

3 Tablespoons wheat germ
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon honey

In a bowl, mix first 3 ingredients and let stand for 20 minutes.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and wheat germ.
IN a large bowl, beat butter & sugar together til light. Beat in honey and egg.
Alternately, add oat mixture and flour mixture to the egg mixture. Spoon into muffin
cups and bake for 25 minutes.
