Reviews for Grandma's Honey Muffins
"Excellent!! A friend gives me unfiltered honey, which is what I made these with and the flavor was outstanding!!! Didn't even need butter. I am adding this to my cookbook....... thanks for sharing!!"
"Reminded me of cornbread muffins. Did not have a honey flavor. Kinda plain tasting muffin without adding jam or more honey/cinnamon. More like a biscuit, butter and jelly taste with a muffin texture. If you have to have sickly sweet for your breakfast these are not it. I grew up on corn muffins for breakfast so they fit my expectations and taste."
"I used whole milk to give it a richer taste. Will make these again."
"Perfect basic recipe -- change milk to orange juice and add dried cranberries -- make as written add blueberries or raspberries -- love it -- found this about two years ago on this site and have made it about once a month since then."
"I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to my mix and I did NOT use 2% milk and I'll bet Grandma didn't either. TOH and it's love of 2 % milk really gets me. That might be why some thought they were a bit dry. Always use full fat dairy for best results."
"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."
"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."
