Isn’t there something about freshly-baked honey cornbread muffins that just makes you want to smile? I’m a big fan of corn cakes with butter and honey any time of day. If you are too, try these honey cornbread muffins inspired by Jessica Gavin!
This recipe works well to feed a large crowd during Thanksgiving as people can just grab a muffin and dig in right away. These cornbread muffins take about 30 minutes to bake up in the oven before serving. I try to time it right so that that they are nice and warm at the dinner table.
This recipe uses baking powder in the batter to rapidly rise and bake, creating the perfect domed tops. The muffins are so delicious that your guests will devour them faster than it took to make!
Each cornbread muffin is packed with sticky sweet honey. This makes the flavor even more delicious and the cake texture moist. Honey is a humectant, which means that it attracts water and keeps the cakes from becoming too dry.
This is my go-to cornbread recipe that I’ve made countless times.
