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…
This stuff is deeeee-licious!! I’ve been putting it in my eggs and wow, you just have to try it 🙂
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 🙂
The first step is to cream the butter and sugar together with your mixer until it is light and fluffy, then add the eggs and honey and beat a few more minutes. Stir in your dry ingredients, then add your buttermilk, creamed corn, and green pepper sauce. Don’t over-mix, you don’t want tough muffins. Just spoon the batter into prepared muffin tins and bake for 15-17 minutes.
To me, no cornbread is complete without at the very least, a pat of butter, melting into the soft nooks and crannies, or butter and some honey drizzled over the top!
I can’t even begin to tell you how soft and fluffy these muffins are… so light, not dense at all. If you like the airy tops of muffins, you’ll love these. I prefer these over regular cornbread!
