Honey Cornbread Muffins

I love cornbread. Growing up this was not something we ever had in my house. It was a novelty item that I would periodically get to have if we were on vacation eating at a Cracker Barrel. My parents are from up north and cornbread was just something they did not grow up eating–thus they didn’t pass on the cornbread loving genes to me! *I know I’m probably going to catch hell from my mom on this post just as I do almost any post I ever mention her in. 

As I’ve grown older I’ve been on the hunt for the most amazing and perfect cornbread recipe out their. This my friends… is it. This is my new go-to recipe. I love sweet cornbread and this recipe satisfies all my cornbread needs!
