butterscotch crumb muffins recipe

From homecooking.about.com

Buttermilk and brown sugar form the basis for these muffins. They get a burst of flavor from butterscotch chips. Also good for mini-muffins. I like to make half standard and half mini-muffins from the same batch of batter. The standard muffins freeze well. Try experimenting with other flavored chips, even chocolate.
