    Ummmm Ummmmm Good! Made this recipe to finish up a container of buttermilk I bought for another recipe. The buttermilk really helps the overall moisture of the muffin. I eat them with grape jelly. - 3/18/12

    I thought the muffins seemed dense and not very corn-like. I definitely prefer the Jiffy box mix. And when they are 2 for a dollar, they are even harder to beat. We still ate them, just not our favorite! - 1/27/09
