Reviews forGrandma's Honey Muffins
"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."
"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."
