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!

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

    I made this as my contribution to the teacher appreciation “chili luncheon” for my wife and her colleagues. I opted to make mini muffins, and I doubled the recipe. A double recipe yielded about 70 mini muffins (measured at 1 Tbsp batter per muffin). But I ate a couple straight out of the oven, so I got a few less!
    I was concerned about the “watery” batter, as well as the high heat/short cook time. (I baked in my convection oven, and it converted the temp.) But Holy Heck! These came out perfect, to the minute! 12 minutes and done.
    Moist, tender, sweet, and great texture from the higher cornmeal to flour ratio. I prefer the “crunch” of the cornmeal vs. the “Jiffy mix” style of cornbread. But then again, I’m the only Yankee to enjoy corn meal mush and corn cakes!
    Great recipe…THANK YOU!5 stars
