Add the buttermilk and molasses and beat until combined.

Slowly fold in the flour mixture just until incorporated. There are going to be lumps, it’s ok. You DO NOT want to overmix muffins they will become tough.

Evenly divide batter into the muffin pan with an ice cream scoop. The muffins cups will be full.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Do not over bake they will dry out.
