Recipe | Cinnamon Swirl Buttermilk Muffin with Crumb Topping

It’s 3 days till Christmas, the kids are off from school, my husband and I have taken the next couple of weeks off to spend some quality time as a family as we head into the New Year. This mini end of the year time off is usually spent reflecting on what we enjoyed about the current year and what our goals are for the upcoming here. We don’t usually focus on the bad, we envision a better or more promising new year while baking, watching movies and making crafts with the kids. This Cinnamon Swirl Buttermilk Muffin recipe was something we made with the kids a couple of times this year, it makes a great snack and an equally filling breakfast when accompanied with a glass of milk or a cup of tea/coffee.

    I make a cake similar to this, and it is one of my absolute favorites. I have never tried to make it into muffins. I am going to pin your recipe to make one weekend soon.

    Buttermilk makes baked goods taste so wonderful – which is so funny because the taste of it straight, at least to me is ick! LOL.
