Friends in the catering business claim this is the most popular muffin they serve. We believe it.
Cream the sugar, shortening and honey together, then add to this mixture the remaining ingredients and mix lightly. Fill greased muffin pan cups two-thirds full. Bake for 25 minutes in a 350 degrees F oven. (Or cover the pans with wax paper and store in the refrigerator overnight to bake up fresh in the morning.)
