Preheat oven to 375. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin, being sure to spray the top of the tin, too, as these muffins have a tendency to stick.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (can substitute 1/2 cup whole wheat for a firmer crumb)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Toss in the grated cheese and mix to coat. Melt the butter and stir the honey into it to combine well. Stir in the milk and beaten egg and combine well. Pour the milk mixture over the flour mixture and stir quickly to combine--don't over mix. Spoon the batter in to the prepared muffin tin, filling about 3/4ths full. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until muffins are nicely browned. Eat soon!
