Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375*F. Butter a 12-cup muffin tin.
  2. Combine the flour, powder, soda, salt and wheat germ in a medium bowl.
  3. Cream the butter with a mixer, then add the honey and beat until fluffy.
  4. Add the egg, zest and juice and beat again.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the butter-honey mixture and stir until just combined.
  6. The batter may be lumpy - don't worry about it, just make sure you don't have any dry spots.
  7. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full and bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Cool slightly in the tins for about 5 minutes, then remove and cool completely on a rack or serve warm.
