    Roosie's Note:

    Why just about anything with wheat germ in it is titled "California" I'll never know, but I love the stuff. This recipe is adapted from Gene Opton's book, "Honey: A Connoisseur's Guide".

      Sigh... every chef has a bad day, right? Today I burned the muffins. Wish I could say it wasn't my fault, but it was. I really, really love this recipe. There is no refined sugar, only honey, so that's a plus. And they're very very tasty (when you scrape off the burned bottoms). I will definitely put this in my Keeper file and try again! Thanks for posting, Roosie. Made for Recipes WIthout Photos 2013.
