TWD & BWJ: Buttermilk Crumb Muffins

I really appreciated this recipe from Baking with Julia. It was easy, delicious and I only had to buy two ingredients; the buttermilk and nutmeg.  I was up early Sunday morning and the muffins were ready by the time my spouse got out of bed about an hour and a half later. 
I tried an experiment with our foil muffin tins, which we have re-used a number of times. I used paper liners for six of the muffins and cooking spray for the other twelve muffins.  The paper liners worked the best. The cooking spray left us with delicious muffin tops, but the rest of the muffins were left in the pan. Now I know. Next time I'll use paper liners. 
That said, the muffins were very tender and sweet.  They make the perfect morning treat. 
To see how other bakers fared, go to Tuesdays with Dorie. Our host for this recipe is Alisa and she will post the recipe on her blog.
