Even though I tend to like my cornbread on the sweeter note, this recipe is quite versatile. A couple of changes and you could have yourself a savory treat too. These pair exceptionally well with a bowl of soup or chili, slathered with a delicious jam or butter for breakfast.
If you want to go the savory route I recommend bacon, jalapeños, herbs, corn kernels, grated cheddar – they would all make for great additions.
Over to the recipe: Soft and tender with a fluffy crumb – Honey Cornbread Muffins.

- 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.
