Cornbread Muffin Recipe

A Cornbread Muffin is a small pastry made from cornmeal and flour. This has been a traditional staple in areas wherein wheat breads are expensive. In general, cornbread is eaten as a side dish for barbeque, chili, and roasted meats. This Cornbread Muffin Recipe is one of the simplest ones around.

There are plenty of Cornbread Muffin Recipe circulating in the internet. Each recipe variation represents an area wherein cornbread or cornbread muffins are a popular treat while others are priceless restaurant recipes such as Kenny Rogers, Boston Market, and the likes.

This particular Cornbread Muffin Recipe is a twist of the southern cornbread and Kenny Roger’s recipe. I enjoy using this recipe for its wonderful texture and right amount of sweetness. I also like the idea of having whole kernel corn around.
