Cornbread Muffins


Does anything round out a meal as well as cornbread?  Maybe it’s just my Kentucky roots.  (My mom’s family is from Kentucky, so I can claim that.)  Or the fact that we’ve lived here for 20 years.

Or maybe cornbread just really does round out a meal better than most anything else.

Usually, I make Southern Cornbread or Cheddar Muffins or sometimes, Hoe Cakes.  This time I wanted a muffin without the cheddar.  And I wanted a little sweetness. (I actually put a bit of sugar in the cornbread.  Like a Northerner!)

Here’s what you’ll need:

Cornbread Muffins

Servings 12 muffins


  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 Tbs. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 stick butter melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Stir the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Stir the sugar into the melted butter.
  3. Add the egg and milk.
  4. Pour this into the dry ingredients and stir, just to combine.
  5. Divide into 12 greased muffin cups.
  6. Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

    • I love cornbread in a cast iron skillet, especially if it’s been coated with bacon grease. I always use oil though, since bacon grease isn’t good for a person.
