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".

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 375*F. Butter a 12-cup muffin tin.
  • Combine the flour, powder, soda, salt and wheat germ in a medium bowl.
  • Cream the butter with a mixer, then add the honey and beat until fluffy.
  • Add the egg, zest and juice and beat again.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the butter-honey mixture and stir until just combined.
  • The batter may be lumpy - don't worry about it, just make sure you don't have any dry spots.
  • Fill muffin tins 2/3 full and bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool slightly in the tins for about 5 minutes, then remove and cool completely on a rack or serve warm.

    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.
