Good Monday morning to you! Can it really be that three weeks have passed since our last Muffin Monday? Yikes -- how time flies. Here it is November already, the day before election day, in fact (don't forget to vote!), and for our purposes here on the blog, it's Muffin Monday. :) Today's recipe is a perfect fit for a busy fall morning -- happy baking!
Simple Buttermilk Spice Muffins
2 1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour
2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. sea salt
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 t. cloves
2/3 c. organic sugar
1/2 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. buttermilk
Combine 1/4 c. sugar together with 1/2 t. cinnamon and sprinkle on top of muffins before baking. :)
Preheat oven to 375F and lightly grease muffin pan (we like to use coconut oil) being sure to lightly cover the top edges so muffins won't stick.
Combine flour, baking soda, sea salt, and spices in a large mixing bowl; set aside. In a medium bowl (one with high sides works well) thoroughly combine organic sugar and softened butter using an electric mixer; add eggs and mix on high speed until well blended, then stir in buttermilk until just blended. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients using a mixing spoon and hand stir until just blended -- don't over mix your muffins!
Scoop batter evenly into prepared muffin pan and sprinkle with topping if desired. Bake for 20 minutes; check muffins with a toothpick to be sure they're done. Cool muffins in pan for five minutes before removing to a wire rack to finish cooling. Of course you may want to enjoy these warm with butter -- everyone in the house will surely be finding their way to the kitchen when they get a sniff of these delicious muffins!
And just because they're so cute, here's a photo of AnnaLynn and her bff who baked a batch of these during a recent sleepover. :)
