  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey

For the honey butter

  • 1 stick unsalted butter room temperature
  • 2-3 tbsp honey
  • Pinch salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray or line a mini muffin, or regular muffin pan.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Whisk together and set aside.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, butter, and honey. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Batter may be lumpy.

  4. Divide the batter evenly into prepared muffin pans. Makes 48 miniature muffins, or 12 full size muffins. Bake minis for 8-10 minutes, full size for about 15 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool slightly, and enjoy with honey butter.

For the honey butter
