  2. In a large bowl, beat egg until frothy. Beat in sugar and butter and mix together on a moderately high speed until well blended, fluffy, and pale yellow. 
  3. Add sour cream and vanilla; blend well.
  4. Sift dry ingredients together; add to sour cream mixture. Mix by hand and blend well.
  5. Pour into greased muffin tins. 
  6. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and spread honey topping over cakes and return to oven for 15-20 minutes or until topping is bubbling.  Serve warm.
