Honey Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins

I’m a total sucker when it comes to breads.  Of any kind.  Rolls, crusty breads, sandwich breads, croissants, biscuits, and one of my favorites… cornbread!!  I like all kinds of cornbread, but I have to admit, I like it sweet 🙂  Something I’ve been into lately is mixing some heat with that sweetness… like in this honey jalapeno cornbread.  Aaaaaand, they’re made into little muffins!

Not your everyday cornbread… these little muffins are so soft, fluffy, flavorful and fun to eat!

You may be wondering why there are no jalapenos in the jalapeno cornbread lol.  Since I was making these for my kiddos, I chose not to add some diced fresh jalapenos (sad face), but fear not!  There’s still some great jalapeno flavor in there thanks to this…

If I was making this for other people who didn’t mind green things in their food (gotta love kids…), I would totally add in some diced fresh jalapeno to the batter.  It would really elevate the heat level, without going over the top.

Making these is pretty simple and quick… I had my batter made by the time my oven came up to temperature 🙂

Anyway lol, these scoops are awesome.  They’re called batter spoons, and mine are made by Wilton (love that brand!).  Mine were a Christmas gift, but here’s a link where you can get some for pretty cheap:  Wilton 2103-1112 Scoop-It Batter Spoons, Set of 3.  The middle sized one is perfect for regular muffin tins, the small one for mini muffins and the large one for jumbo muffins 🙂

  1. These look so yummy! I would make a double batch too, as I would eat one batch myself 🙂

  2. Annnnnnnnd, I’m drooling. You just reminded me- there was something I wanted to make with jalapeno (it’ soo good in so many different things)- case in point, these muffins! Now..if I could only remember what recipe I wanted to make with jalapenos! I keep a piece of paper and write these things down but I always lose the paper! Kinda defeats the purpose. How about I just pin these and make them instead?! PERFECT! 😉

    • LOL, I do the same thing with writing down things to make, then losing the paper! I finally started a “secret” board on Pinterest for recipes I really need to try… it helps keep me semi-organized 🙂 I say semi because really, I’m always scatterbrained! And yayyyyy I like that idea… I know you’ll LOVE these 😀 😀
