Simple Corn Bread Muffins with Maple Butter (she: Jana)


  • For the muffins:
  • 1 cup yellow corn meal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 5 tablespoons butter melted
  • For the maple butter:
  • 1 cup 2 sticks real butter, softened
  • 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup pure is best!
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice


  1. For the muffins:
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place 12 liners in muffin tins or coat muffin tin with cooking spray in not using liners.
  3. Mix dry ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl. In a separate bowl beat milk and egg together. Add the melted butter and whisk until combined. Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
  4. Scoop batter into liners or muffin tin about 2/3 full. I always use my large cookie scoop...it gets just the right amount.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until pale golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  6. For the maple butter:
  7. Beat butter in electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add syrup and spice and mix until well combined.
  8. Slather onto corn bread muffins and enjoy!
