Reviews for Grandma's Honey Muffins
"Good. A little bland at first but they get better with every bite. I too used the honey cinnamon butter recipe which definately bumped them up to 4 stars."
"I tried this recipe for the first time this week, you should have seen how my husband's eyes lit up with the first bite. I believe this will be a favorite recipe which will be used often."
"Very easy to make and moist with a hint of honey. We love large muffins for breakfast so I used a larger muffin pan and got 6. Great recipe"
"Felt temp was too hot. Adjusted time. Muffins were soft and moist."
"Good but not great. Expected a stronger honey flavor which was not evident. I would make again... maybe."
"These are very good. They are quick to put together and bake, perfect for breakfast with some fruit on the side."
"We love this recipe and it has become family favorite. I preheat the oven to 400 but then drop it to 375 after I add the muffins. Other than that, I follow the recipe as written. I make them for breakfast at least once a week and there are never any leftovers. We eat them with butter and a little raw honey drizzled on top or with butter and jam. Just perfect. Thank you for sharing your Grandma's recipe!"
"These muffins were a hit with my boys, easy to make, wish the recipe yielded more than 12, will have to make a double batch next time...;)"
"These muffins tasted wonderful - we actually liked that they tasted a bit like corn muffins, but the texture was better. Loved the nice honey flavor. These muffins would go great with many types of meals."
"These are the most scrumptious muffins I have ever tasted. I make them twice a month at the very least. They are great with coffee and good with many dinner meals. I'm a honey lover and always have all the ingredients."
