The Best EVER Cornbread Muffins

I love cooking for house guests, but it is even better when I have house guests who like to help me cook!  That way, I not only have helping hands in the kitchen, but I also learn new recipes! One night last week while Rob’s family was here, we made BBQ Chicken Salad and I was just planning to open a box of Corn Bread Mix to go along with it, but my super SIL Megan said, “Wait! Let me make the Cornbread!” (Sure Meg, go right ahead!) And I am so glad she did, these cornbread muffins were the best! Here is the recipe:

1/2 c. Butter (softened)
1 1/2 c. All-Purpose Flour
2/3 c. Granulated Sugar
3/4 c. Yellow Cornmeal
1/4 c. Honey
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
2 Eggs
1/2 c. Milk
1/2 tsp. Salt
3/4 c. Frozen Yellow Corn (which Megan omitted because our FIL hates cornbread with chunks in it!)
Preheat oven to 400˚. Cream together butter, sugar, honey, eggs and salt in a large bowl. Add flour, cornmeal and baking powder and blend thoroughly. Add milk while mixing. Add corn to mixture and combine by hand until corn is worked in. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan and fill each cup with batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until muffins begin to turn brown on top. Makes 12 muffins.

This stuff was like eating cupcakes! Not super starchy- just light and fluffy! Mmmmm…. I want some tonight!

  1. Gasp! I was planning to make cornbread on Sunday and was just wondering where my recipe ran off to. And now I see this! Thank you!!!!

  2. Two cornbread recipes in one day! But this one looks even better because I don't have to convert it to muffins and guess at the baking time. Also, anything with honey makes me happy. Thanks for sharing!
