1/2 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
2 large eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 Tablespoons lemon zest
3/4 cup raisins
How Honey Is Created
Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.
In a mixing bowl beat together butter and honey. Add eggs to mixture and beat well. Blend in buttermilk.
In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda and lemon zest. Add wet ingredients to flour mixture. Mix until flour is moistened. Stir in raisins.
Fill muffin cups ¾ full. Bake for about 17 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
