Notes

  • This is an old fashioned corn bread muffin recipe.
  • Be sure to use softened butter so that it creams with the brown sugar.
  • This sweet corn bread recipe makes 12 corn muffins.
  • I use yellow cornmeal in these homemade corn muffins. 
  • To store, it is best to keep these refrigerated since they are so moist to prevent molding.
