New Recipe I've Been Dying to Share!

If you didn't know before, you know now that I love to bake and cook and try out new recipes, especially breakfast recipes these days. Here's one I loved and hopefully you will too!

Mimi's Cafe Buttermilk Spice Muffins

Note...I have always been CRAZY over these muffins at the restaurant - they are my favorite and I start thinking about them and tasting all the warm spices before I even walk in the door and get my seat! I went on the Mimi's Cafe website and lo and behold, they had graciously posted the recipe - Go Mimi's! Try these, they are sheer delight for any cinnamon and nutmeg lovers. And I didn't have any walnuts on hand so I used pecans which did just fine. And as always, I didn't have any buttermilk so I did the whole 1 TBS white vingegar to 1 cup milk substitute, which has always worked just fine for me!


Muffin Batter:
1 cup Sugar
½ cup Butter or margarine
3 Eggs
2-½ cups Flour
2 tsp. Baking soda
1 tsp. Nutmeg
½ tsp. Cinnamon
¾ cup + 1 tbsp. ButtermilkNut Topping:
½ cup Sugar
1 cup Walnuts (finely chopped)
½ tsp. Cinnamon
½ tsp. NutmegInstructions
Preheat oven to 375°. In a mixing bowl, cream the sugar and the butter together with an electric mixer. When they are thoroughly mixed, add eggs and beat one more minute.
Sift the flour into a separate bowl, together with the baking soda, nutmeg and the cinnamon.
Add the flour and the buttermilk to the first mixture, mix at low speed until smooth. To avoid lumps in the batter, add the wet and dry ingredients alternately, in small amounts.
Make the nut topping: Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.
Grease muffin tins with butter or margarine. You can also use paper baking cups. Fill each cup 3/4 full of batter. Add a full, rounded tablespoon of nut topping on top of each muffin cup of batter. Bake immediately or the topping will sink to the bottom of the muffin.
Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. A toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffin should come out dry. Home ovens heat differently from commercial ovens so you may need to adjust the temperature or the baking time accordingly.
Recipe yields 12 standard-size muffins, or six Mimi's-size muffins. If using the jumbo muffin pans, reduce the oven temperature by 25° and increase the baking time 5-10 minutes.
