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.

Crumb Topping

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.

This was my first time making bagels. It was fun and I do plan to make them again. The bagels definitely don’t keep for long, so I’m glad I only made half the recipe.

Cowgirl Creamery Clabbered Cottage Cheese

When I saw Andrew Knowlton mention this cottage cheese in a recent issue of Bon Appetit magazine I had to try it. I had almost purchased it before, but since it is about twice the price of other cottage cheese I held off.
