I can remember my Grandma Wheeler making these delicious muffins—we'd eat them nice and warm, fresh from the oven! She was a "pinch of this" and "handful of that" kind of cook, so getting the ingredient amounts correct for the recipe was a challenge. Now it's a family treasure! —Darlis A.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 3, 2015

"Very good. Tasted exactly as expected. Texture was fluffier and less dense than expected (haven't decided if that's good or bad). I disagree with the other reviews about the vanilla--I think it would ruin the taste."

"I made several batches of these muffins over the weekend for our church's quarterly ladies' tea. They were good plain and with butter and raspberry jam. They are a simple-flavored muffin and pair well with lots of different drinks and foods. Definitely a good staple."

"Perfectly sweet and perfectly delicious. This is one of those classic recipes that you turn to over and over when you want to nourish the people you love. Great with a cupa anything. Better baked in a greased muffin tin because they do tend to stick to the paper liners. Sure do love them - thanks so much for sharing your "honey" of a recipe."

"It doesn't get much easier to make and they taste and smell great - I just would like to find a way to alter this so there's less sugar. Is there a good substitute?"
