Buttermilk Muffins & Syrup!

I picked up some buttermilk at the store and wanted to share two amazing recipes with you!

Buttermilk Syrup
The best stuff for waffles, pancakes, biscuits or on oatmeal....this stuff is to die for and only made once in a while at our place because we've been known to drink this addictive butter laden concoction directly from the jar!
1 1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Mix all of the above ingredients together (except the vanilla) and bring to a boil and cook for 7 minutes...remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. This recipe was found on-line on allrecipes.com....and next...

Buttermilk Spice Muffins
(Mimi's Cafe recipe...mmmm)

Muffin Batter:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
3 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon buttermilk

Nut Topping:
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup walnuts (I'm allergic to walnuts so I used almonds & peanuts)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Grease the baking tins with butter. Pre-heat oven to 375. In a mixing bowl, cream the sugar & butter together. After thoroughly mixing add eggs & beat one more minute.

Sift dry ingredients together and then alternate adding the dry ingredients and buttermilk to the wet mixture. Make the topping.

Fill the muffin tins 3/4 full with batter, scoop large tablespoons of topping and bake about 15 - 20 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean....oh so good!
