Honey Cornbread Muffins

These cornbread muffins are sweet and moist and a favorite on soup nights, especially with a spicy vegetarian chili.

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
1/2 stick butter, melted
1/4 cup honey
Special equipment: paper muffin cups and a 12-cup muffin tin

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Into a large bowl, mix the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.  In another bowl whisk together the whole milk, eggs, butter, and honey.  Add the wet to the dry ingredients and stir until just mixed.

Place muffin paper liners in a 12-cup muffin tin.  Evenly divide cornbread mixture into the papers. Bake for 15 minutes until golden.
