Sweet Buttery Cornbread Recipe


This sweet buttery cornbread is a traditional bread basket favorite! Serve with soup or salad or a delicious bowl of chili. This cornbread recipe is also perfect for Thanksgiving!


  • 1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup Albers yellow corn meal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 & 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 6 tablespoons butter, finely chopped into teeny tiny pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Briefly mix to combine. Add all remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl. Mix until just blended. Do NOT overmix.
  3. Using a small cookie scoop fill two mini muffin pans with cornbread batter 2/3 full.
  4. Bake one pan of cornbread at a time in the middle of the oven for 7 minutes. Remove each pan from the oven promptly before the cornbread edges become brown. The cornbread’s sides should be the same soft buttery yellow color as the top of the muffins – not brown.
  5. Allow the cornbread muffins to cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Using a skinny spatula, gently remove the mini cornbread from the pan and transfer to a cooling rack. Serve warm or at room temperature with additional butter and honey.
