These tender corn muffins are the cream of the crop! Tender and moist, the muffins get a pleasing hint of sweetness from the easy homemade honey butter. —Angela Lively Baxter, Tennessee

"These were just OK. I reduced the time since my oven tends to run hot and they were still a little dry. They also don't hold up well as leftovers. I wound up throwing it away. I've found better, more moist corn bread before so I will stick with those recipes."

"These were good not sure they were the best we've had."

"I based my muffins on this recipe, but used yogurt instead of buttermilk (because it's what I had) and fresh corn cut from the cob. They came out quite good.

I will make them again -- probably with buttermilk, just for ease of mixing!"

"Our family really enjoyed these corn muffins. They had a great taste and were easy to make. They were just a touch crumbly but worked perfect with our vegetable soup. We didn't make the honey butter - but I don't really think you can go wrong with it :)"

"I made this to go with some home made chili and they are wonderful. I actually forgot to add the whole kernel corn, and it was still wonderful!"
