Reviews forGrandma's Honey Muffins
"I made this recipe with my 8 year old daughter who really enjoyed it! We decided to double the amount of honey after seeing the reviews. They were delicious! My son aged 10 says he can't take the honey but he likes them anyway. We are in the UK and appreciated a nice easy recipe to follow as it is kid friendly. In the UK All Purpose Flour is called Plain Flour."
"These were good while warm, and certainly sweet enough, but plain and didn't taste like honey."
"Loved this recipe thanks for sharing!"
"These were okay. They have a very sweet flavor and taste a lot like cornbread as others have commented."
"These were absolutely delicious and easy to make. We didn't need to put any condiment on them !!!!!"
"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."
