cornbread that is super cute and sweet

honey muffins-hCornbread is one of those things that I have 1000 recipes for (kinda like brownies) but I just can’t get enough of them.  Each one is just a little different, making each one super special in its own right.  

Over time I have tried so many recipes, some with buttermilk, some without, some with cheese, some without but our favorites is always the ones with honey…we love us some sweet cornbread.  We have also determined that we love cornbreads made like muffins…I mean it is just cute to have little cornbread muffins on the table, but this recipe would work great baked in a skillet or in a pan.

For this  latest cornbread adventure I paired one of our favorite buttermilk cornbread recipes with honey (did I mention I love honey)…and it turned out so, so good.  The muffins were light, but still crumbly, and with the perfect hint of sweet in each bite making these the perfect muffins.
