Honey Cornbread Muffins


2 cups plain flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tbsp + 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 cup butter or cooking margarine, softened
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 heaping tbsp honey
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cup milk

Preheat your oven to 350 F and spray muffin tin with cooking spray. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, soften butter and add eggs, vanilla, and honey. Stir until well-combined, then add your oil and milk. Mix just until all the lumps are gone.

Divide your batter into the muffin tin, and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden on top and a knife inserted comes out clean. While muffins are baking, mix your butter and icing sugar together until thick and icing-like. Once muffins are done, place onto wire rack and allow to cool slightly. While muffins are still warm, brush them with some melted honey butter.

*Makes 12 regular or 24 mini muffins.*
