    Dear Myra, Made these this morning, when your dough is proofing time stops.
    How can a relatively easy recipe be so good, I'm embarrassed, I ate them all, by myself, the first three were with bacon paste & homemade apple butter, pipping hot from the iron skillet, the remaining muffins didn't make it until noon. The second batch is rising as I type, I have to freeze some just to see how they come out.
    Now I can't wait to try preparing them with some Saco buttermilk blend
    Can't thank you enough for this recipe!

      So glad you enjoyed the recipe!

      I don't know about freezing the dough, but cooked ones do fine, once cooled.

        I like muffins. I like corn and blueberry ones. This is another to add for me to try. Sounds good.

          Looks great!

          Reminds me that I need to get my sourdough ones on here too. I use a flat griddle large enough to cover two adjacent burners on the stove and a surface thermometer to get the right temps so they cook slowly.

          I haven't made any in a long time. Might just be time to do it.

            Please post sourdough recipe. I haven't mastered getting them with holes like I prefer, so am going to let the next batch ferment with 1/4 tsp. yeast for 20 hours, or so.
