Buttermilk is acidic, and baking soda is alkaline. The reaction of these two ingredients provides leavening in this recipe.
Kitchen Tip
It is important not to overmix quick breads and muffins; overmixed batter produces tough baked goods with peaked tops.

Bake these muffins early in the day and let them stand, loosely covered, at room temperature. Reheat them at 375°F for 5 to 7 minutes.
