Honey Cornbread Muffins

So, I wasn't actually planning on baking Honey Cornbread Muffins today. I was saving this recipe for later on. I already baked Mexican Wedding Cookies earlier and so I thought I was about done baking for the day. I was working diligently to finish my 3 essays, art homework and read for my Asian Studies Class. A couple hours went by and I decided to take a break and get something to eat in the kitchen. While in the kitchen, my brother comes out of his room and says "What you making? Cornbread?!". I replied "No, if you look over there, I already made some cookies". He then said "Come on. You should make some cornbread". Well, that's why I made these Honey Cornbread Muffins. I got the recipe from the Neelys. These were super simple to make and I made them in no time which was great because I had a lot of other work to do. The Honey Cornbread Muffins were moist and had that classic corn/nutty taste from the corn meal, sweetness from the sugar and honey (the honey also gave a nice floral note) and the sweetness was balanced out by the salt. Overall, very good recipe. I didn't like the crumb of these however. I think I need to figure out how to make the crumb better and I have an idea in mind. I also think the temperature should be lower because these did brown up fairly quickly. Well, here's the recipe.

Honey Cornbread Muffins
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
1/2 stick butter, melted
1/4 cup honey
Special equipment: paper muffin cups and a 12-cup muffin tin

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Into a large bowl, mix the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the whole milk, eggs, butter, and honey. Add the wet to the dry ingredients and stir until just mixed.
Place muffin paper liners in a 12-cup muffin tin. Evenly divide the cornbread mixture into the papers. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden.

    Valen: Thank you! These muffins were def. super delicious and quick. I made these in literally, 30 min. There was another recipe I was looking at by Ina Garten that was more of a savory corn bread but in her recipe she said to let the batter sit for 20 min or so, so that the corn meal can absorb the liquid. I might have to try doing this. Maybe these muffins will be even better. I love your blog too! All the pictures on your blog look so good and makes me hungry!

  9. Great photos, but the recipe is a copy of one by the Neelys' on Food Network that dates from 2008. The directions are word-for-word identical. I know this is an old post but why don't you cite your sources?
