Maggie Monday: Honey Muffins

Sugar…..oh honey, honey… are my candy girl….

This recipe came from Taste of Home. The description sounded like it would be a yummy breakfast option. Sweetness with honey is always pretty darn good!

And yes, just 8 ingredients, which is often my cut off for all but “special” recipes!

I was very happy with the result. The muffins are a slightly sweet and tender and great with a cup of coffee or tea. I made some honey butter and spread it on a warm muffin.

I forgot about mine in the oven and over baked them a bit. They should be lighter and prettier than mine, so don’t make the same mistake. Set the dang timer!!

These would be great with soup, stew, or chicken and noodles!

Spectacular. Simple, sweet and satisfying!

    I think I’m heading into my kitchen to make these right now!! And I understand about ‘over baking’ something – I ended up doing that several times when I was posting my ‘The Popover Experiment’. Luckily I never ruined any of them – just like you didn’t ruin these fabulous looking muffins!!

    I’d eat pretty much any overbaked pastry.
