Cornbread Muffin Recipe
These sweet cornbread muffins really stand on their own. While I love to eat them as is, they can easily be turned into a sweet treat with a little dollop of jelly on top as well.
Or, if you’re like my boys, smothering them in gravy is also a totally viable option, too!
Is cornbread meant to be dry?
Typically, it’s a drier type consistency than other bread options. This doesn’t mean that it should crumble and be as hard as a rock but be prepared that it will have more of a crumbly texture than other bread recipes.
What do you eat with cornbread muffins?
Literally anything you want. Green beans and ham are a great choice, as is turkey, cranberry sauce, and baked yams, too.
You can even add a bit of butter and honey and eat them alone for breakfast as well.
