Light and sweet Honey Cinnamon Cornbread Muffins with a hint of spice. Moist, yet rustic, corn muffins are a perfect addition to the dinner table.


  • 1 1/4 cup plain yellow cornmeal (not cornmeal mix)
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup buttermilk (low fat or full fat)
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted (1/2 cup)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Grease your muffin pans, or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Whisk the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Then whisk in the eggs, honey, and buttermilk. Mix the melted butter in last and whisk until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Use a 1/3 cup scoop to ladle the batter into the muffin pans, filling only 2/3 full. Bake the cornbread muffins for 20 minutes, or until the tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cornbread muffins to cool for 2-3 minutes, then flip them out of the muffin pans.

    Cornbread is a must with so many meals at our house.  I never experiment with it though.  You have inspired me, I want these for breakfast!

    I can never make cornbread without a little honey, so needless to say these sounds amazing!

    these look awesome Sommer, now all I need is a pot of chili!

    What a brilliant idea! I love the idea of taking cornbread to the breakfast table. Perfect!

    Honey and cornbread are a must-pair, so these cornbread muffins look like little bits of heavenly perfection!

    How delish… I can’t wait to try these!!

    This sure brought back memories of my childhood. We always had a glass of milk with cornbread in it. I thought everyone else did too lol. It sure would have been better using your recipe.  It was still really good plain but yours  would really have been a treat. I absolutely love cornbread.  Thanks!!

    These muffins are perfect! I love cornbread so much, but for some reason I don’t remember to make it as much as I should. Time to change that!

    Hi Sommer… These look amazing… I have a lot of masa harina leftover from another recipe… Could I use that instead of the corn meal?… I think they are similar…

    • Sommerposted April 25, 2015 at 5:57 pm Reply

      Hi Elisabeth! Masa is a bit finer-grade than cornmeal, but I bet it would work. Let me know how they turn out if you try it. :)

    These sound so good! I’ve never added cinnamon to my cornbread. What a treat!

  12. Tessposted April 28, 2015 at 10:54 am Reply

    sounds amazing …. but could I sub polenta for the cornmeal (which we don’t really get in South Africa – we do get maize meal, but never used it before)? Thanks!

    • Sommerposted April 30, 2015 at 7:10 pm Reply

      Hi Tess! Hmmm… I think I would try with Maize Meal before polenta. They would probably turn out too grainy otherwise. Happy Baking!

      • Tessposted May 3, 2015 at 3:45 pm

        Just FYI for any South African followers, it turned out just great with the maize meal! Thanks for the recipe :)

    I can’t wait to try this ,was wondering if I could use 2%milk instead of buttermilk would that still work or does it have to be buttermilk ?

    • Marthaposted November 9, 2015 at 1:26 pm Reply

      Debra, you can make your own buttermilk by adding about a tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice to regular milk. Just let it sit on the counter for 5 or 10 minutes before using. You need the acid from the buttermilk to help create a lighter muffin.

    These are amazing and so moist. I do have to sub the milk, flour, and butter due to being gluten & dairy free. I used flax milk, Bobs 1 to 1 GF flour,  and coconut oil – oh how I miss butter! Thank you so much for this awesome recipe!!
