"Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;...
and not today's pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man."

¼ cup (60ml) honey

½ cup (125ml) flour

1 tsp (5ml) bicarbonate of soda

1tsp (5ml) sea salt


The fun:


  1. Preheat the oven to 180oC

  4. Add the eggs, oil, water and honey. Stir well
  5. Add the remaining sifted dry ingredients.
  6. Oil the muffin pan and place the raw mixture three-quarters of the way up each individual muffin mould.  Bake for 30-35minutes.
  7. Leave the muffins in the pan to cool slightly.  Remove and allow to cool and rest for at least half an hour on a wire cooling rack.
