Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400℉. Line a muffin tin with liners or lightly coat with nonstick spray and set aside.
  • To a large mixing bowl, add the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, honey, buttermilk, eggs and melted butter until just combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until they are just mixed. The batter will be light, airy and fluffy.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the muffin tin using a mechanical ice cream scoop. They should be close to full. Bake for 15 minutes until a golden color. Let the muffins sit for 5 minutes in the pan.
  • Cool on a wire rack or serve warm with butter and drizzled honey if desired.

Notes

Using nonstick spray without muffin liners will give a crisper edge to the muffins vs using a liner will keep the muffin fluffy throughout. Either way is absolutely delicious!
