Sweet Cornbread Muffins - The Southern Lady Cooks

Sweet cornbread mini muffins is a recipe you will make over and over.  I have never been a fan of sweet cornbread but these sweet cornbread muffins are delicious.  Serve them with pulled pork barbecue, ribs on the grill, soup or just about any meal and your guests will keep coming back for more.  They keep well for several days in a cool place and you can freeze them.  You could make half this recipe, too.  They are wonderful slathered with butter and your favorite jams and jellies.  I can eat these little muffins like eating candy for a snack.  Be sure and check out all the other cornbread recipes on our site!

We love these delicious muffins with barbecue. They just go together with a great summer meal! Coleslaw, macaroni salad, pulled pork and sweet cornbread muffins. So good!

RECIPE FEEDBACK- “Didn’t want to make a cast iron full of cornbread this times. I loved these little bites. I usually only have almond milk on hand which doesn’t have much fat so I added some heavy cream. They were perfect out of the oven. Thank you!” – Colleen

“Made this as side for our lobster boil. Everyone enjoyed these as much as the lobster! Great recipe! The recipe as is yielded 48 mini-muffins for us. Thank you!” – Jason
