Honey Cornbread Muffins

Today I’m going to a Chili Cook-Off.  I don’t have a super special recipe for chili… but I can bake!!  So, I’ve whipped up a batch of Honey Cornbread Muffins.  I’ve never made them from scratch before, always from the little blue box in the grocery store.  But, I recently acquired a can of cornmeal and knew this was the perfect time to whip up a batch!

I love these muffins because you don’t need an electric mixer to make them.  Just two mixing bowls, a whisk, spatula and measuring cups/spoons.  SO EASY!  These would be great too with a little cheddar cheese thrown in or some cream corn.  YUM!  So many ways to mix this up!
