2/3 cup caster sugar
3 tbsp honey
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups plain flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 160ÂșC.
Place butter, sugar & honey in bowl & beat until light & creamy.
Add eggs, one at a time, & beat well.
Fold flour & baking powder into butter mixture.
Sppon mixture into 12x 1/2-cup capacity lightly greased non-stick muffin tins.
Bake in oven for 15-20 min or until cooked when tested with skewer.
