The Perfect Cornbread Muffin

IMG_5373

 

Perfect recipes are hard to come by these days and often involve rounds of trial and error to weed out the less than perfect recipes.

Once Upon a Chef has the best cornbread muffin recipe I’ve tried thus far. The muffins are moist and full of flavor. Each bite you get some sweetness from the honey, a little texture from the cornmeal, and richness from the butter. I also jazzed up 6 of the muffins by adding a little cheddar. I think they would be good with jalapeño or fire roasted corn!

Next time I bake these, I would like to replace the chicken’s egg and use a flax egg (1 Tbls flax, 3 Tbls water for one egg) and see what happens. You could easily swap dairy butter for non-dairy butter.

  • 3/4 c yellow cornmeal
  • 1 1/4 c flour
  • 1 Tbls baking powder
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tbls honey
  • 3/4 c milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • Add-ins like cheddar or jalapeño!
  1. Mix the dry ingredients, set aside
  2. Combine the wet ingredients, and pour the wet ingredients into the dry
  3. Stir until major clumps are gone, if using add-ins, add them in!
  4. I followed the main recipe and opted out of the muffin liner. Instead, I sprayed the muffin pan with cooking spray
  5. Bake at 350 F for about 20 minutes
