I’ve been baking these cornbread muffins for at least 10 years and they are my absolute favorite! They are on the sweet-side and are very moist and tender, the way I prefer cornbread. Many times I just pour the batter into a greased 11x7” baking dish, bake for 22-25 minutes, let cool and then cut into squares. I used to make my own so-called buttermilk by combining milk and vinegar as I always had these two ingredients on-hand. I have since discovered powdered buttermilk (it IS made from real buttermilk) and I find the taste and texture of these muffins are even better when I use it, following the directions on the back of the container. Note that the “buttermilk” in your grocery store’s dairy section may not be true buttermilk; I always thought it was—check out its ingredients.

I was looking for a super quick and super tasty cornbread to throw together with leftovers and this recipe fit the bill! Instead of vegetable oil, I used a mix of half unsweetened applesauce and half orange olive oil and an IN LOVE with the results!!! Can’t wait to eat the leftovers for breakfast over the next few days!!!

I have not made these yet but they seem to be what I'm looking for. Baking recipes must be followed to the T, it's a science. ie. buttermilk is LIQUID NOT powdered. Powdered is NOT Liquid. Just my 2 cents.

By far my favorite corn muffin recipe, love the texture, flavor and moistness. I make my own "buttermilk" with lemon juice and milk and they are always yummy!

I had to post a 2nd time because I failed to give this recipe a star rating and found no way to go back and edit my initial review to include it.

Followed this recipe to the letter with the exception of using Canola Oil and powdered buttermilk. Neither of which should have made a negative difference. But I found them only acceptable. They did indeed crumble and were barely sweet. I also didn't like the darkened color caused by the addition of brown sugar instead of white.

My late mother-in-law made it our business to try corn muffin recipes we liked as well as the Jiffy mix. When I finally found this recipe in a ToH mag years ago, we knew it was a keeper. Everyone loves it. I miss Ruth very much and I think of her whenever I fix these muffins for my family.
