 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  c             sour milk or buttermilk
    1      c             old-fashioned oats
    4      tbsp          melted butter
      1/2  c             honey or light brown sugar
           pinch         mace
    1                    egg -- beaten
    1      c             all-purpose flour
    1      tsp           baking powder
      1/2  tsp           soda water
      1/4  tsp           salt
 
 Pour the milk over the oats and let stand 30 minutes (don't use instant or
 quick cooking oats - they make a tasteless muffin). Mix butter, honey or
 sugar, mace and egg in a bowl, then add oatmeal and mix again. Sift
 remaining ingredients together, add and stir enough to blend -- the less
 stirring, the better the muffins.
 
 Grease 1 1/2 to 2 inch muffin cups, fill 2/3 full with batter and bake in a
 400 degree F oven 12-15 minutes.

 NOTES : A 10-year old girl made these for me when I was judging ahoney
 contest in Winnipeg. They were so good that I asked her for the recipe.
 Serve them hot with whipped butter and Manitoba honey.
