{Vintage Recipe} Honey Muffins

Hand me an old book and you will see me smile.

In our home, we love collecting old books, antiques of all kinds, vintage housewares … they all tell a story …  and are so delightful to incorporate back into a daily life schedule.


This morning, we had oatmeal and honey muffins for breakfast – the recipe for the muffins is in an old Purity cookbook, dated back to 1932.

They were a delicious breakfast muffin – not too sweet and perfect with homemade strawberry jam. The honey was locally made, as well.

Here is the recipe, if you are interested:

Honey Muffins

2 cups of sifted Purity flour
4 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt1 egg
1 cup of milk
4 tablespoons of honey
3 tablespoons of melted butter

Mix and sift flour, baking powder and salt. Combine beaten egg, milk, honey and cooled butter.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.
Pour wet mixture and mix very quickly (mixture should be lumpy, not smooth).
Fill greased muffin tin and bake at once in a hot over of 400′ for 20-25 minutes.

{of course, we double or triple everything because on batch is simply not enough!}

Courtney Thank you for sharing! We made this recipe today and it was delicious. The only thing I changed is I used 1/2c milk and 1/2c honey Greek yogurt (because I ran out of milk.. Whoops!)
