Honey Cheese Corn Muffins

Corn bread is so delicious, and so easy to make. It's quick and easy to whip up if you want something else for dinner and you want it fast. This time I decided to make corn muffins.

I made this recipe quite a while ago and forgot about it. Last week I was looking for something quick to make for dinner and I found it. It looked promising, so Lara whipped it up for dinner. We were both glad she did.

These muffins turned out quite delicious. They were very corny, with a slight touch of sweetness from the honey. We could taste the honey, but it wasn't overpowering. They were all gone pretty quickly, and they will most likely make an appearance on our table sometime very soon!


Up close and personal to all that corny goodness

A cute dozen

Mmmmm

Note: Sadly, my food budget does not allow me to buy aged cheddar, I just used shredded, grocery store cheddar. It doesn't really have that much flavor, but it adds nice color to the muffins.
