Easy Sweet Cornbread Muffins are perfect with soups, chili, your favorite barbecue, and even as a stand alone snack. They’re quick and easy, sweet and tasty, and best of all gluten free!
Recently, I had dinner with two of my very dear friends. The three of us worked together for many years. Although we each went on to work for different companies, we’ve stayed in touch and try to meet monthly for dinner to catch up.
One of them suggested I add a cornbread recipe to my blog. Before developing Celiac disease, I loved ordering cornbread whenever a restaurant served it as a side dish. Unfortunately, most cornbread isn’t gluten free. Yes, it’s made with corn meal, but most of the time regular flour is also included as an ingredient.
I searched around for a recipe I could adapt and found one that used Bisquick™ Baking Mix as one of the main ingredients. I’d had success with Gluten Free Bisquick™ when I made this Quick and Easy Gluten Free Coconut Pie. I had a feeling this mix would work equally well in creating tasty muffins. If your local store doesn’t carry Gluten Free Bisquick™, you can find it here.
Easy Sweet Cornbread Muffins come together very quickly. One bowl is all you need to mix the six ingredients together. Simply divide the batter into the 12 baking cups and bake for about 20 minutes. The muffins are done when a wooden pick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
These muffins have a slightly sweet flavor making them great as both a side dish or snack. Unlike some gluten free baked goods that have a tendency to crumble, these held together amazingly well.
Last week I shared these sweet corn muffins, along with some savory corn muffins (recipe to be shared later), with my co-workers at our monthly potluck to see what they thought. The reviews were mixed – some really liked the sweeter muffins while others preferred the savory ones. I guess it really depends on what you like – sweet or savory.
I have to say thanks to my dear friend, Chris, for the cornbread suggestion. If it weren’t for her, I don’t know when I would have made these sweet, tasty, cornbread muffins.
The next time you need a quick, tasty side for your favorite soup, chili, or barbecue, whip up a batch of these Easy Sweet Cornbread Muffins and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
