BWJ - Buttermilk Crumb Muffins
It's Melbourne Cup Day here in Melbourne, so Melburnians have a public holiday for a horse race. Pretty cool, yeah? I am not going to the races this year, but it is obligatory to watch the Cup on the telly - the big race is at 3pm EST. Apart from The Cup itself, the fun of the races is watching everyone all dressed up - the best time to do this is first thing in the morning, before everything falls into tatters, like Cinderella after the ball.
This Tuesday is also a Baking with Julia Tuesday, and this week's recipe was Buttermilk Crumb Muffins, hosted by Alisa of Easier Than Pie. As I am not at work today to share, I only made a quarter recipe of these muffins, yielding just four. I don't use shortening in general, so I substituted the same quantity of butter, and didn't seem to have any issues.
These muffins were easy to make, and delicious while warm - making them perfect in my book.
You can check what the other BWJ bakers thought of these muffins at the website.
