My SO thinks very highly of these muffins, as he can't stop eating them; I really didn't find them sweet enough for my tastes (as completely opposite the other reviewer's point of view). If you are like me and like a sweet pick-me-up in the morning, I'm tempted to say you could easily double the honey or maybe add some brown sugar. These may not make exciting muffins IMHO, but I am excited to try turning this into a bread by adding more flour and some yeast. I have a feeling this recipe is worthy of my bread machine. Thanks for sharing!

Well myself like the other reviewer, omce I saw the ingredients list I knew they were for me. I cut back a wee bit on the honey, only because I don't like things real sweet. Nummy though :)

I knew when I saw the ingredients for these muffins, I'd love them. These were really tasty. I'm embarrased to say that I did not read the recipe carefully, and only put in 1/4 honey! They still were fairly sweet, but next time I'll get the honey measurement right. I was intrigued by the cookbook title and even checked it out from the library! It looks like it has some other great recipes. Thanks for posting! Roxygirl in Colo.
