Buttermilk powder, oil/fat & other fixes, read this! These are tasty muffins when you make some changes to the recipe. First, few people have butter milk and it’s hard to get real butter milk. Even with real buttermilk there is an insufficient amount of oil in these muffins and the default recipe is only really good when both the muffins are still warm and butter is applied. I recommend butter milk powder over regular liquid buttermilk as it does not expire and it is easy to find the powder. To substitute buttermilk powder add 4 tablespoons of buttermilk powder, ¾ of a cup of milk and ¼ of a cup of vegetable oil. I would recommend the ¼ cup of oil even if you use real buttermilk as these are dry otherwise.
The default recipe is also very sort on cinnamon. When cinnamon is mixed in with the flour the tasted is reduced greatly compared to being a topping or filling. I have made this recipe with as much as a full tablespoon of cinnamon and not found it that strong. I would encourage you to at least double the default teaspoon.
Final note the recipe seems a bit heavy handed with leavening agents. It would be worth trying this minus a ½ teaspoon of the baking powder. I have not tested this yet.
