Buttermilk muffins are sweet and simple and the perfect pairing for any meal or a snack.
Recipe type: Muffins
Serves: 12 muffins
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup sugar plus additional for sprinkling on top
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup buttermilk, room temperature
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and grease a muffin pan; set aside.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly, scraping down sides of bowl. With mixer on low-speed, slowly pour in buttermilk and mix until incorporated scraping down sides of bowl again. Batter may be a little lumpy, that's ok!
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, salt and baking powder.
  4. With mixer on low-speed (you can also use a spatula and stir by hand), pour in dry ingredients and mix JUST until combined. Do not over-mix.
  5. Pour batter into prepared muffin - you should have enough to fill all 12 spots about ¾ full. Sprinkle a little sugar over the tops of each muffin.
  6. Bake at 425 degrees for 7 minutes then reduce oven to 350 and bake for 8 mins. Remove and let cool.
These are great for breakfast but I also love to serve them with dinner! They're great with ribs, a roast, and brisket.
