How To Make Sweet Cornbread Muffins

For these tasty cornbread treats, you need the following ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup yellow corn meal
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp butter melted
  • 1 cup milk

You begin by preheating your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and mixing the dry ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl.

Next, whisk together the “wet” ingredients.

mixing an egg and melted butter together

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until they are well combined. You don’t want to over mix the batter. (Although I added the wet ingredients to the dry, it really is better if you do it the other way around. That should help to minimize clumping.)

stirring cornbread batter

Pour the batter into your muffin pan and bake for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Cornbread is a Southern staple and is really easy to make. Because these muffins are more like lightly sweetened muffins, they are perfect for breakfast or brunch.
