This is my family’s favorite muffin recipe.  I have made these hundreds of time over the years.  This makes a big batch so you can have them 2 or 3 times.  This recipe has buttermilk in it, unlike other recipes that have milk.  The buttermilk gives it a great flavor. Serve them warm with honey and butter. Breakfast doesn’t get any better.
