These honey muffins are great for breakfast and come together really quickly with ingredients you have on hand and the best part is you can use any kind of honey you like. They are soft yet dense and slightly sweetened, which makes them perfect for copious amounts of butter, you could eat them for breakfast, too alongside some eggs and bacon or sausage.
Line your muffin pan with liners then in a large bowel, add all-purpose flour, sugar and baking powder, the baking powder is what is going to give the lift to the muffins. Mix the dry ingredients together to make sure the sugar gets through the flour as well as the salt and baking powder. For the wet ingredients, you will need milk then add an egg to the milk to lightly break it in.
Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients with melted butter and honey then mix everything together. When mixing this batter, be careful not to overmix it, you just want to make sure the dry ingredients are moistened. To fill the muffins, use an ice cream scoop or a spoon and fill the muffin cups three-quarters way full.
