I have always felt that cornbread is the perfect complement to any meal. When made well, it is soft and sumptuous with a comforting earthy-sweet aroma and taste.

It’s just the sort of bread to serve with chili and soup, or to pile high in a breadbasket on a holiday table. No matter where you grew up, one bite of good cornbread seems to transport you right back home!

Although large pans of cornbread cut into squares are enticing, I prefer cornbread muffins. That way, each piece offers crusty edges and a fluffy center.

I also find cornbread muffins seem to seal in the moisture, so they don’t dry out as fast, making them marvelous leftovers for breakfast and snacks.

These lovely Apple Spice Cornbread Muffins are a play off my mom’s classic cornbread recipe with tender chunks of apple speckled throughout the muffins, and a hint of apple spice.

They are all a cornbread muffin could ever hope to be!

Unlike the dry, granular, lifeless cornbread you often come across, these little guys are golden, fluffy, slightly sweet, and bursting with fall flavors.

The fresh diced apple in the batter offers contrast in texture. It also makes the muffins extra moist. The apple spice flavor comes from the addition of rich creamy Musselman’s Apple Butter.

Adding apple butter, instead of just adding spices to the muffins, also elevates the fine tender texture of these beauties.

Musselman’s Apple Butter is a great choice for this recipe because it’s silky and smooth with a deep luxurious flavor. Plus, now it’s made without high fructose corn syrup!

  1. I liked this recipe. Cornbread tends to be drier so we will see how they are tomorrow but they are just slightly sweet and the apple cubes add good moisture and texture to it. I think a little sprinkling of raw sugar on top before baking could also give a nice crispy top crust to it for more texture.

  2. These sound amazing! That subtle sweetness has got to be great!

  3. I totally love this idea. We always put blueberries in our corn muffins but I can see the apple being amazing too. Cannot wait to try.

  4. Somer,

    Oh, how I miss that color – the muted yellow of cornbread baked just so….

    These look perfect for Thanksgiving. And as luck would have it I’m headed back to Georgia (the land of cornmeal) for the holiday. Nice use of fall apples too.

    Thanks for sharing.
