Corn Muffins with Honey Butter

There's an interesting country story behind this recipe. I've worked at our local Farm Bureau office for 15 years. A friend on our women's committee developed it to give people new ideas for using farm commodities. I especially like preparing these muffins for my family on a winter night—along with a big pot of chili, they make for a very hearty meal! My husband and I have a farrow-to-finish hog operation here on the farm where he was born. We also grow several crops. One son farms with us, we have a grown daughter and our other son just graduated from high school.

    Thank you thank you thank you for putting this recipe on this website! I cut this recipe out of Country Woman Magazine in 1993 and it was my go-to recipe. I loved it more than any other corn muffin or corn bread recipe and I lost it a couple of years ago and have searched for it and moaned about it. I looked online hoping but not really thinking I could find it and here it is!

    These muffins are delicious and the honey butter adds a touch of sweetness. I will definitely make this recipe again.
