Brown Sugar Buttermilk Muffins

Perfectly light and fluffy muffins, not too sweet and great for breakfast or dinner.  

Brown Sugar Buttermilk Muffins- the perfect muffin, and easy to make too

Who doesn’t love muffins?  I think they are great for breakfast, brunch and even dinner.  These muffins are made with brown sugar, but they aren’t too sweet.  I think they are just perfect.

Brown Sugar Buttermilk Muffins- perfectly light and sweet

I like muffins that are light and fluffy, not too dense.  The buttermilk in these makes them the perfect texture.

And this recipe makes about 18 muffins.  With little kids around, extra muffins is always a GOOD thing.

Cran-Orange Honey Butter spread on muffins, goes great on pancakes, rolls, and waffles too

I can’t resist a warm muffin with melty-butter on it.  (Especially this delicious Cran-Orange Honey Butter!)

Brown Sugar Buttermilk Muffins are so delicious

  1. Do you think you could fill the middle of these with a little jam or jelly?? And have you made these into mini muffins? What would the baking time be? Thanks so much!

    1. Jessica, I haven’t tried filling these with jam or jelly, but that sounds yummy! I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. For mini muffins I would check them at about 10 minutes, and then add another minute or two if they still weren’t done. Good luck!

      1. Thanks so much! Im gonna give them a go tomorrow, I’m excited to see how they turn out. They sound super yummy! I’ll let you know how they turn out!

  2. My family love these muffins. I fill 12 muffin cups with one batch. Great for breakfast on the run or anytime (agreed – not too sweet but great snacking muffin). I add that fancy baking sugar on top and bake them !!
