Reviews for Grandma's Honey Muffins
"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."
"I've been making these since the recipe first appeared years ago and make them often. My family and friends fight for the last one each time they are served. Easy to substitute Splenda without sacrificing anything. I've also recently started to add fresh blueberries to the recipe and that makes them even more delicious. A perfect easy and quick recipe that goes with most meals."
"I thought this was really good and had a nice light honey taste. The only thing is I'm not sure when or for what you would make these. Perhaps for a tea or a continental breakfast/brunch. It isn't really desert but also not something I would want with chili or soup (it is similar in taste to cornbread, but slightly sweeter and lighter/fluffier)."
"Absolutely wonderful. Tender and flaky and would go with any meal. blj618"
