These gorgeous, melt-in-the-mouth muffins are full of lovely flavours.. honey, brown sugar, pecans and cherries. They make a great treat served with a cuppa.

  • 1egg
  • 150ml (1/4pt) milk
  • 100g (4oz) pecans, roughly chopped
  • 100g (4oz) dried cherries

  2. Heat the butter gently in a saucepan until melted, then stir in the sugar and honey. Beat the egg and milk together. Make a well in the flour then pour in the honey and butter mixture followed by the beaten egg and milk. Stir the mixture together quickly to mix. It doesn't matter if there are a few small lumps.
