I think I would be deeply suspect of anyone with a muffin pan that was TOO tidy. Normal people have messy muffin pans.

Do you know that you can add 1 tbsp on vinegar to regular milk to make a buttermilk substitute? I can't have buttermilk on hand for longer than a day because my kids DRINK IT. What is WRONG with them?

I'm glad my muffin pan didn't shock you...I knew the trick about the vinegar and the milk but I just decided to throw caution to the wind and use the soymilk.

And you know--I used to drink buttermilk too when I was little!

I've been on a cookie and muffin kick lately. So will definitely be trying these soon. It's been cold and rainy here lately too.
Don't you just love when a recipe comes together perfectly when you are making it modified? I will have to try these because your description made me crave them.

Well I thought about why the recipe would say to soak the oatmeal for an hour and then I figured it was so the oatmeal would soften. Maybe the muffins would be even tastier with the buttermilk and the soaking, but they were heavenly just the way I made them!
