Honey Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins

Honey Jalape–o Cornbread // Erin Skinner from The Speckled Palate for My Cooking Spot

As someone who was born and raised in the South, I know cornbread is a big deal.

However, until a year ago, I always made cornbread from a pre-made mix because I didn’t want to mess it up. But one fateful day, we were hosting friends and family for our traditional New Year’s Day gumbo celebration… and I forgot to grab a few boxes of the mix from the store.

I scrambled, scouring my cookbooks an hour before the party, and decided upon a random cornbread recipe. And it was pretty darn good!

So I’ve been experimenting with cornbread ever since, and these gorgeous Honey Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins are one of my favorite tries to-date! The honey and jalapeño balance one another out so well, adding a little sweetness and a little spice to the muffins.

I love the eggs standing up. I think they look prettier, and not so regular looking and mixes it up a bit. But it is totally up to you.
