On this page I’m sharing my recipe for cornbread muffins with cheddar and honey. The cheddar cheese and the honey really give these cornbread muffins some extra taste.
In the Netherlands cornflour isn’t a much used ingredient. But when I lived in New York, I ate cornbread muffins quite often. You can make plain cornbread muffins, but if you add Cheddar cheese you get tasty cheese cornbread muffins. And if you add honey you give the muffins an even richer flavor. Cheese and honey are a great combination in general. That’s why you often find honey on your cheeseboard, and are goat cheese or brie sandwiches often sprinkled with honey.
These cornbread muffins with Cheddar cheese and honey are a great party snack or side dish for dinner.
The recipe on this page is enough for 12 muffins. That will be enough as a side dish when you’re making dinner for four. But you can also easily keep these muffins in the freezer if you don’t need all twelve.
