These homemade Southern cornbread muffins are moist, fluffy, and easy to make from scratch. This recipe yields a savory muffin with just enough sweet to complement the cornmeal! They’re best served fresh from the oven and are great with chili or as a Thanksgiving side dish!
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1 cup flour
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup corn or vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Add cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder to a large bowl and whisk to break up any clumps.
Combine egg, milk, and oil in a medium bowl and whisk to combine.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overmix.
Pour batter into a greased muffin tin, filling each cup about halfway. Bake for 13-17 minutes or until toothpick stuck in the center comes out mostly clean. Don't overbake!
Serve warm with butter and a drizzle of honey, or as a side for chili.
