Reviews forHoney Muffins
"I tried this recipe for the Honey Recipe Ingredient Challenge for the week of 9/8/14!I DID make slight adjustments to this recipe by using 1 tsp. salt instead of 1/2 tsp. salt!I also used melted margarine instead of butter to conserve on my butter supply and I think that I WILL try adding: 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. all-spice and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg to dry ingredients for a spicier flavor! I'd baked honey cakes from time to time in the late 80' and early 90's.The honey cake recipes called for spices and that added flavor to the cake! I do feel that honey IS bland when used in baked goods, but the recipe CAN be adjusted as the tester sees fit!)I have found that when I baked these muffins, that it is a good idea to bake at 15 TO 20 minutes-my first batch of muffins were fine on top, but darker than was necessary on the bottom as I'd used a heavier type of muffin pan! My 2nd pan baked 20 minutes and they were fine! I made these muffins again, using the 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. allspice and1/4 tsp. nutmeg and added 1/2 cup raisins along with 1/8 cup all-purpose flour to batter.I rated this recipe as a *4 as the 2nd time around, my batches of muffins adhered to the paper liner! I sampled them and they definitely HAD an improved taste with the raisins and spices! It was just that the liners adhered to the muffins and I saw MORE muffin on the liner than seeing a full-sized muffin when liner was removed! I DID get 18 muffins the 2nd time around! delowenstein"
"Good muffins! Served them with honey butter. Will make these again."
"I really like the flavor of these, however, I think I might have over-baked them a little because they were dry. I did make a maple syrup and powdered sugar glaze that I liked! I will try again though and keep a better eye on them."
"These make a delicious treat for honey fans! I substituted in one cup of white whole wheat flour (King Arthur brand) for added nutrition and added 1 teaspoon of grated orange zest to intensify the orange flavor. Yummy!"
"I substituted lemon juice and sprinkled poppy seeds on top. Wonderful recipe."
"Not quite orange-y enough, even though I also added some orange zest."
