Cornbread Muffins

"I wanted to incorporate lemon and honey into an original cornbread recipe, and I had to add greek yogurt and cheddar cheese because...don't ask questions...just because. I used a light olive oil, but any vegetable oil is good."

Ready In:
12 muffins




  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees centigrade or 375 degrees fahrenheit. Line a muffin tin with liners.
  • Combine all ingredients - EXCEPT CHEDDAR - into a large bowl and whisk to combine well - DO NOT OVERMIX. Add cheddar and blend just until incorporated.
  • Distribute batter evenly. It will come to the top of each liner, but that's OK because they don't rise that much.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

  1. Delicious! We really loved these lightly lemony cornbread muffins. The lemon flavor is subtle and not overpowering. They are not too sweet, but sweet enough. The cheddar cheese added a slight saltiness that was very pleasing. The only thing I did differently was to use lemon Greek yogurt instead of plain. I think this helped boost the yummy lemon flavor. Thank you for sharing this wonderful is definitely a keeper! **Made for Culinary Quest Express Round #1 - Suitcase Gourmets**
  2. These were yummy!! I made 1/2 a batch just as directed and the other half, I must admit I changed a bit. There's only 2 of us in the house and I decided to make half "savory" and the other sweet. I usually don't post about significant changes I make, but the base recipe is soooo good, I can't help it. The original recipe is great and I like Bayhills review! For the "sweet" half, I just left the cheddar out and added fresh blueberries and topped with some chopped candied ginger. They were amazing. I got a full 16 muffins and for the two of us, I loved having one recipe I could use in two ways!! Thanks Ev! Made for Culinary Quest Express Round #1 - Int'l Agents of QUEST!


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
