Cornbread Muffins

Cornbread Muffins

Cornbread Muffins – A perfect snack and side, with a kick of Jalapeño paired with subtle sweetness from honey and Jaggery. Butter these beautiful muffins for extra deliciousness. And the best part is these are fluffy on the inside!

My husband and I were regular at this restaurant Z’tejas. It was for their cornbread, I would say the best one I have had. Hot cornbread with butter is lip-smacking. On that note, I am sharing eggless Cornbread Muffin recipe (bake from scratch) as muffins are easier to hold and don’t look like Dhokla.

How to make Cornbread Muffins?

Pretty much simple, bring all wet ingredients together, combine.

add dry ingredients. Combine well. Add leavening agents at the end to avoid overmixing. Pour the batter into each cupcake lined molds and bake. Use fine cornmeal. I used medium-fine cornmeal in the picture below. You can use that too, but it may end up a little crumbly. Tastes great, nevertheless.
