Buttermilk Spice Muffins

I happen to love a certain carrot muffin from a restaurant called Mimi’s Cafe. I even have a copy cat version of it that I have shared here on the blog.

Well, recently I discovered that they have the recipe for their buttermilk spice muffins on their site. Since I loved the carrot muffin so well, I figured I would try the buttermilk spice one at home. It is a try muffin, but I must admit the carrot one is still my favorite!
