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.

"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."

"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."
