Save Recipe

Cornbread muffins stem from the traditional Southern cornbread, but with a personal-sized twist that makes them irresistible and easy to serve. They have a golden exterior that encases a fluffy, slightly sweet crumb.

What’s fantastic about these muffins is their adaptability. You can enjoy them plain, or jazz them up with mix-ins like jalapeños for a kick, blueberries for a burst of sweetness, or cheese and herbs for a savory punch.

Tips for Best Results

  • Always start with a fully preheated oven for even cooking.
  • Mix just until the ingredients are combined to keep the muffins light and fluffy.
  • Use a toothpick to check for doneness; it should come out clean when they’re ready.

Serving suggestions

Cornbread muffins offer remarkable versatility and pair well with numerous dishes. Ideal alongside a hot bowl of chili or robust stew, these muffins add a sweet, corn-filled flavor that enriches any meal.

They also beautifully accompany BBQ ribs or pulled pork, enhancing the overall richness. For a lighter touch, enjoy them with a crisp rainbow veggie salad, or as a sweet breakfast option with honey butter.

Got any leftover Jiffy corn muffin mix? Try making our corn waffles and cornbread casserole with ground beef. They’re just as easy to whip up, and I bet you’ll love them just as much as I do!

Variations

  • stir in some grated cheddar for a cheesy twist.
  • mix in some honey or sugar for a sweeter version.
  • include jalapeños or green chilies to give the muffins a spicy kick.

Storage

Keep them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days, or freeze them for longer storage.

When you’re ready to enjoy, reheat the muffins in the oven at 350 degrees until they’re warmed through. This method helps retain their delicious crust and keeps the inside moist. If you don’t mind a softer muffin simply reheat in the microwave.
