Homemade Corn Muffins with Honey Butter Recipe

I turn classic corn bread muffins into something special by serving them with a delicious honey butter. They appear on many of my menus.—Suzanne Cleveland, Lyons, Georgia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:16 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups fat-free milk
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the milk. Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture just until moistened.
  • 2. Coat muffin cups with cooking spray; fill three-fourths full with batter. Bake at 400° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Beat butter and honey until blended; serve with warm muffins. Yield: 16 muffins (1/3 cup honey butter).
