I made muffins today for a brunch and I wasn't particularly happy with them. The flavor was good, but they were just sort of flat and unattractive. i want muffins with a nice full, rounded top to them, not ones that barely make it up to the top of the pan. The recipe I used was from Nigella's Domestic Goddess cookbook and contained melted butter and yogurt.
Ideally I would like a basic recipe that I could change by adding berries, citrus or chocolate chips. I am also slightly limited by location. I cannot get buttermilk, and items like half and half or cream are hit or miss. We do have outstanding yogurt though.
Thanks in advance!
A non-dairy substitute for buttermilk is (non-dairy mylk: we use Pacific brand lowfat vanilla almond mylk, but one could use soy or rice, etc.) and a tsp of apple cider vinegar. You could probably add the tsp of ACV to cow's milk with the same effect.
I like the Moosewood Restaurant recipe and it even has the variations/mix-ins listed. No buttermilk in this one but I always use regular milk plus vinegar when a baking recipe calls for buttermilk because if I buy the buttermilk I always end up throwing the rest of it away.
