I turn classic corn bread muffins into something special by serving them with a honey butter. They're gone in a flash! —Suzanne McKinley, Lyons, Georgia

    Anyone that eats at Cracker Barrel knows that the cornbread muffins DO NOT have sugar in them. Not sweet at all. plain old cornbread.

    Hi Taraclausen, yes you can substitute the full fat ingredients if you'd like in this recipe. I don't see where it would make a big difference with the texture.

    My daughter brought me a couple of these to eat with my supper last night. They are DELICIOUS! I didn't have the honey butter but they didn't need anything on them. I will make them often.

    This is a good recipe. I only ate one tiny piece because this is definitely not low carb. Flavor is good. I'm not opposed to going back and forth between this recipe and my traditional recipe.

    Made these the other night to go with MVP chili - delicious! Honey butter was a nice touch. Got good comments from hubby and guest. Will definitely make again.

    Made these last night to go with some homemade chili. They were excellent and so easy to put together. Made them exact. Next time I make them I will use less sugar, they were just a tad too sweet. Also did not make the honey butter, again because for me the sweetness would have ruined the corn muffin. Just personal preference.But will make again soon, corn muffins are a favorite!!!
