The muffin book that I'll first be trying out is 100 Magnificent Muffins & Scones by Felicity Barnum-Bobb. My mom found this book for me at Barnes & Noble for only $7.98, so I think it was a good steal.
The first recipe in this book was Whole-Grain Honey Muffins. After looking at the main ingredient (malt or multi-grain flour), I was kind of iffy about it, but I just decided to make my own flour since I wasn't able to find neither of the two.
Whole-Grain Honey Muffins
*makes 9 muffins*
1 1/3 cups malt or multi-grain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/8 cup dark brown sugar
3 tbsp honey
scant 1/2 cup sunflower oil
finely grated zest of 1 small lemon
2/3 cup skim milk
1) Heat the oven to 400F. Line a muffin pan with 9 muffin liners.
2) Tip the flour into a large bowl. Add the baking powder and sugar.
3) Mix together the honey, oil, egg, lemon zest, and milk and pour into the dry ingredients in the bowl. Use a large spoon to fold everything together.
4) Spoon equally into the paper muffin liners and bake for 15 minutes, or until the muffins are well risen, firm, and springy to the touch. Serve warm.
