How To Make Cornbread Muffins From Scratch
Prep – Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees F. You’ll also want to either grease your muffin tin or use cupcake liners. I’m all about presentation, so I love using cute cupcake liners.
Step 1 – Start by creaming the butter, sugar, eggs, honey and salt together in a bowl until it’s fully mixed.
Step 2 – Next, add in the flour, baking powder and cornmeal and give it a good mix. Slowly stir in the milk and mix until everything has blended together.
Step 3 – Stir in the corn until it’s evenly distributed throughout the batter.
Bake – Fill the muffin tins with batter and then bake for about 20-25 minutes. When the muffins are fully cooked they should be a light brown color on top.
Serve – Let them cool and then enjoy! They taste great as is but I like to top them with a little Honey Butter as well.
