Sweet Potato Muffins with Caramel Sea Salt Butter main

Private Selection sent me the collection of their new sweet and savory finishing butters to try out in some of my cooking/baking.  I have to say I seriously love them!  The savory butters include Lemon Garlic & Herbs, Lemon Pepper, and Roasted Garlic & Herbs.  And the sweet ones include Honey, Cinnamon Brown Sugar and Caramel Sea Salt. 


Yeah, Caramel Sea Salt butter.  I’d like to eat that one right out of the tub.  {Maybe I did.}  I’m turning into my mother-in-law you guys.  She loves, no really, she loves butter.  She sent me this the other day and I got a good chuckle.    


I think my mother-in-law needs these Private Selection finishing butters.  Butter lover heaven.  I’ve been using the butters on everything.  Veggies, pasta, muffins, toast, rolls, breads.  And I made these amazing sweet potato muffins using the Caramel Sea Salt butter.  The pairing was perfect.  I used a little of the butter in the muffins and slathered a good amount all over the top of them, right out of the oven.  And maybe on the insides too. 

They pretty much taste like dessert, and they were long gone before lunch.  I’m a big fan of dessert for breakfast.  But these would also good for your Thanksgiving spread.  Or use up the leftover sweet potatoes with these muffins.

  52. Butters look so delish for all of the wonderful holiday meals!

  53. Thanks for the giveaway

  56. Those look great!

  57. Big fan of butter :+)

  58. I just made these muffins a few days ago because sweet potatoes are one of my most favorite things, and these looked delicious! However, when I went to actually make these muffins, I realized how poorly written this recipe is. You instruct us to put the flour, cinnamon, etc. in a bowl, mix, and set aside. And then move on to what we should be putting in our mixer’s bowl. However, you never actually go back and tell us when we should be adding the flour into our mixer’s bowl with the eggs, oil, etc. I don’t bake all that often, but luckily my sister is a pastry chef and I asked her when it would be most appropriate to add the flour back in. Unfortunately, not everyone would be able to do that and may struggle with this recipe. My muffins were on the dry side, but since I didn’t have the special finishing butter maybe that’s why, and regular butter is not satisfactory. Overall, I am really disappointed because I was looking forward to these muffins, but I think I may try again but making my own alterations to make them more moist.
