Honey Cornbread Muffins

Cornbread muffins made with REAL corn! You read that right-real corn baked right in! 🙂 Split open one of these amazing muffins and just check out all those kernels! The  corn and corn meal combine to make the ultimate cornbread muffins! The other night I made some three bean vegetarian chili and I usually make my favorite corn bread recipe for this soup, but I was wanting to try a muffin recipe. I was searching for a new recipe on allrecipes.com and came across this amazing recipe. It had many high ratings, rave reviews, and real corn! The original recipe called for frozen corn, but having none on hand, I used a whole can of corn. Let me just say-oh my goodness, these are awesome! To make these even more addicting, serve with honey butter or maple pecan butter.

    Hi, love to try this out. When you mention ‘In a small bowl whisk together flour, cornmeal and baking powder. Mix into butter mixture. Stir in milk and corn’ does this mean that you are u still using the stand mixer with the paddle to mix the flour, cornmeal and baking powder mixture in alternating with the milk or are u doing this by hand with a whisk? Of course, the corn must be mixed in using a hand whisk order to get the yummy corn kernels and not with the stand mixer. Just wanted to confirm that’s all. Thanks.

      Use the stand mixer to beat together the butter, sugar, honey, eggs and salt. Then use a whisk or wooden spoon to mix flour mixture, milk and corn into the butter mixture. Let me know how they turn out for you! 🙂
