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.

"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."

"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"

"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 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."
