I used gluten-free flour, increased the baking powder to 4 teaspoons and added a second egg. They were delicious! They are a sweet muffin, but then they are called honey muffins . . .

Tried this recipe and was very pleased. It made 12 muffins. The first ones were just a little sweet for me so next time I cut the honey by about half. Highly recommend this recipe

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.

These were okay. They have a very sweet flavor and taste a lot like cornbread as others have commented.

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.
