  • Step 4

    Pour buttermilk into dough until moistened. Believe it or not, you don’t want the dough to come together into a ball. Instead, expect to see various sized pieces of butter and moist flour with the dry pieces still visible.

  • Step 5

    Using a rubber spatula or spoon, fold over the ingredients from the bottom until further combined. It is not important for the mix to be evenly dispersed. Clumps are welcome.

  • Step 6

    Using a large spoon, add the mixture evenly into the individual muffin cups. Top each muffin with a little butter to act as a baste while it bakes (optional).

    Bake for 25-30 minutes. The finished product should be a dark, golden brown with a lumpy texture. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing.
