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!

    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!

    Oooh, this looks so good! Saw on the TipJunkie blog conference post that you were in the Phx area, and wanted to pop by and say "hi"! We just moved here a few months ago and love it (though what's up with the rain?!).
