The weather is finally starting to turn a bit cooler. I am looking forward to having these cornbread muffins with some chili and beef stew!
Honey Cornmeal Muffins
12 regular muffins or 24 mini muffins
Adapted from The Three Cheeses
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 tbsp + 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/8 cup butter or cooking margarine, softened
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3 heaping tbsp honey
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cup milk
Preheat your oven to 350 F and spray muffin tin with cooking spray. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, soften butter and add eggs, vanilla, and honey. Stir until well-combined, then add your oil and milk. Mix just until all the lumps are gone.
Divide your batter into the muffin tin, and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden on top and a knife inserted comes out clean. While muffins are baking, mix your butter and icing sugar together until thick and icing-like. Once muffins are done, place onto wire rack and allow to cool slightly. While muffins are still warm, brush them with some melted honey butter.
*Makes 12 regular or 24 mini muffins.*
