Buttermilk Crumb Muffins
I love muffins with crumb toppings, although they are a bit more like dessert, so I was looking forward to making this recipe.
Like most of the recipes I’ve made so far from Baking with Julia, this one is straightforward. It’s also fairly simple. I almost wanted to replace the buttermilk with yogurt, because in my experience most baked goods work exceptionally well with this substitution, however I refrained since buttermilk is in the name. I did use butter instead of shortening.
The muffins came out fluffy and tender. The crumb topping adds a nice sweetness and texture to make these muffins a bit more special. Buttermilk Crumb Muffins are great for breakfast with coffee or tea, or for a snack.
Blueberries and lemon zest would be a wonderful addition for the next time I make these lovely little muffins.
