From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...It's hard to believe that anything this quick and simple to whip up could also be delicious. You'll just have to take my word for it until you try them for yourself. These muffins have an old-fashioned quality that makes folks nostalgic for the simplicity of grandma's kitchen. Berries and nut and other additions would come as times improved, but these were her most basic muffins and they got their flavor from a small amount of honey. That honey is a blessing and a curse. These muffins want to stick to the pan, so be sure to grease your muffin cups really well or you'll need a jack hammer to release them. I love to make these for morning coffee meetings. They are easy to transport and everyone seems to love them. I think you will, too. They are light, tender and delicious. Here's the recipe.
