Variations to cornbread muffins:
As you can see the ideas are endless for this delicious corn bread muffin recipe. It is a great base recipe that you can add to it to make your own depending on what you are in the mood for.
I love that this recipe is so versatile. This easy recipe is a base cornbread recipe and you can add in your favorite ingredients to make this recipe your own!
Honey is a great addition to this recipe, if you like sweet cornbread. All you have to do is add 1/4 cup of honey to the ingredients and mix it in before baking. Simple and delicious!
If you prefer spicy foods, I recommend that you add chopped jalapeños prior to baking. You can easily remove as much seeds to give this homemade corn bread recipe the prefect amount of spice.
Cheese is also a great add in for this recipe. I love making cheddar cornbread. Mix in approximately 1/2 cup of your favorite cheese to all the other ingredients.
You can also add brown sugar for a sweeter more dessert like corn muffin. We have even added hot dogs to make mini corn dog muffins. Yum!
Sour cream is an optional add in for a smoother corn bread consistency.

Tip for making these sweet cornbread muffins:
This is totally optional but makes it so much easier. I highly recommend using a cookie scoop. You will thank me later because it saves so much time on spooning out the muffins.
They are very inexpensive and typically come in a set with different sizes. That is so handy for other recipes and we use ours frequently.
Amazon has some cookie scoops for very cheap. I have the three pack so that I can use these for cookies, cupcakes, muffins and even meatballs.
I promise you will get tons of use out of these. They are great for so many recipes we make around here.
You can make regular cornbread with this recipe instead of fluffy cornbread muffins.
However, you can also use a cast iron skillet for this recipe.
When using a cast iron skillet, warm up the skillet by putting it into the oven while it is preheating. Then follow the rest of the original recipe and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes until cutting this cornbread recipe.
Can you freeze cornbread muffins?
Yes, you can. In fact, we often make a double batch to have some for the freezer.
You can use freezer bags or an air tight container. This is especially helpful if you just need one or two corn muffins to enjoy with a quick lunch or something similar.
It really is a time saver and so easy. I try to always keep some of these corn bread muffins in the freezer.
Why do my cornbread muffins fall apart?
This is typically a result of over mixing. Don’t mix too much or the corn bread can fall apart and become very crumbly.
The mixture will be bumpy and not entirely smooth so don’t be tempted to keep mixing. This is what causes the corn bread muffins to fall apart after baking.
