Cornbread Muffins

Made with homemade butter AND buttermilk! Bet you can't have just one.

These delicious cornbread muffins have a number of surprises. They’re made with homemade cultured butter and buttermilk. In addition, they have candied jalapeños which you’ll find when you bite into one! They are best when served hot with butter and honey, along with whatever dinner you’re having. And if you aren’t interested in making your own butter these do stand alone without any of the additions! Just my recommendation :) link below for the butter and candied jalapeño recipe.
