Cornbread Muffins - #MuffinMonday

I recently cleaned out my freezer - tossing items that were no longer good and ear-marking others I needed to use ASAP.  There's a bag of spelt that I had intended on using in bread but was quite tasty in my nightly microwave mug cakes. I also found a bag of Martha White's Buttermilk White Corn Meal mix that someone gave me about a year ago. I never used it because I don't like cornmeal and just never got around to making my family something with it. Yesterday seemed like a good day to whip up some cornbread muffins. I kept things simple and used the recipe on the bag but added sugar as my mother likes a sweet cornbread.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the muffins. I didn't taste them but I had one complaint - they stick A LOT. Should I have heated the pan first? If you make this, use cupcake wrappers.  Scroll down to see what the other Muffin Monday bakers made for you this month. It certainly looks like a mouth-watering list.

Also, stay safe! Things here went from somewhat manageable to extremely scary in just about a week so I'm battening down the hatches.

Cornbread Muffins
Yield: 12 to 13 muffins


1 egg
1 1/3 cup milk
6 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons oil
2 cups Martha White Buttermilk White Corn Meal Mix


Preheat oven to 450 F. Line a cupcake pan with cupcake wrappers.

Whisk the egg, milk, sugar, and oil. Stir in the corn meal mix until smooth. It smooths out pretty quickly. Fill each muffin well about two thirds full.

Bake 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.

Enjoy straight from the oven like my brother did or you can wait until they cool.

  1. Cornbread does stick a lot. I don't know that you have to heat the pan first but making sure it's well oiled is key. I'm sure your family was delighted regardless.
    So sorry to hear that Jamaica's number of cases have grown so quickly, Kelly. That is scary. Stay safe!

  2. I love cornbread - I have a few boxes in my pantry that have made their way to the box as well; maybe I need to pull one out!

  3. So sorry to hear that the numbers have risen in Jamaica. Stay safe Kelly.

  4. I really need to clean out ingredients too! I should just shop my cupboards and freezer. Great looking muffins!

  5. That is perfect muffins to use up pantry ingredients. Love this muffins, good breakfast or as snack
