Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

THESE delicious muffins were a significant part of the first dinner I had with my wife when we were courting. She's an excellent cook, and that first meal was truly a gourmet's delight. Now whenever she plans a menu and asks for my suggestions, I make sure these muffins are on it. -Robert Luebke, Appleton, Wisconsin

I used this as a base recipe for pumpkin muffins. I used about a half of a cup or so of pumpkin puree and added a tsp of pumpkin pie spice. Not to pumpkiny or sweet. Will make these again.
