Ingredients Needed for Honey Butter Cornbread Muffins:
Gather the following dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, yellow cornmeal, baking powder, and granulated sugar.
Gather the following wet ingredients from your local Publix: 2% or whole milk, honey, room temperature I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!®, large eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract.
Make sure you have non-stick spray for your muffin pan.
How to Make Honey Butter Cornbread Muffins:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a muffin pan with disposable muffin liners. Spray the muffin liners with non-stick cooking spray. This ensures that your muffins don’t stick to the liners, so you can unwrap and enjoy them while they’re still warm.
Mix flour, corn meal, baking powder, and sugar together in a stand mixer or a large bowl, until it is combined.
In a separate bowl combine milk, butter, eggs, vanilla extract, and oil. Gently mix the wet mixture into the dry mixture, thoroughly combining until it is mixed well.
Spoon the cornbread mixture into the muffin cups, about half way full until all of the mixture is used. Add more (up to ¾ full) if there is leftover batter.
Place the muffin pan in the oven and bake for 20-22 minutes. The cooking time may vary depending on your oven settings.
Check the muffins using the toothpick test after 15 minutes to ensure they're not cooking too fast or too slow. As soon as the toothpick comes out of the cornbread muffins clean, remove them from the oven in order to prevent overcooking or dryness.
Remove from the oven and serve your Honey Butter Cornbread Muffins!
How can I make my cornbread muffins extra fluffy?
If you want your muffins to have a fluffier consistency, add buttermilk instead of regular milk. It also helps to have your eggs, butter and milk at room temperature before combining.
No buttermilk, no problem! Add the correct amount of milk, and squeeze half of a lemon directly into the batter. This is a great substitution for buttermilk.
Can I save my overcooked cornbread muffins?
Mistakes happen, especially if you’re preparing an entire holiday meal. If you over-baked your cornbread muffins, use a wet glaze to soften the crust. I suggest brushing the muffins with milk while they’re still hot.
How should I store my leftover cornbread muffins?
Store leftovers in an air-tight lid lined with paper towels underneath and on top of the muffins in order to maintain moisture and flavor. Leave them at room temperature and eat within 48 hours.
