Cornbread Muffins

Recipe from Once Upon a Chef


1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off 

3/4 cup yellow cornmeal

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons honey

3/4 cup milk (preferably whole but low-fat works too)

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted btter, melted and cooled


Preheat the oven to 350°F degrees. Line a muffin pan with paper liners or spray with non-stick cooking spray. (I prefer to use non-stick cooking spray so the muffins get nice and crisp on the edges.)

In a medium bowl, break up the eggs with a whisk. Whisk in the honey, and then the milk. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the milk mixture and the melted butter to the dry ingredients. Whisk until just blended. Do not overmix; it’s okay if there are a few lumps. Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared muffin pan, filling each cup about 3/4 full. Bake for 17 to 20 minutes, or until the tops are set and golden. (Note that the muffins will not dome.) Cool the muffins for a few minutes in the pan, then serve warm.

Note: If you’d prefer to make this as cornbread rather than muffins, spray an 8-inch square pan with non-stick cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400

Whisk together all dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients on top and stir until just mixed.

Pour into prepared muffin tins and cook for 15 minutes until golden and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Serve with butter.
