Raspberry Honey Cornbread Muffins

Raspberry Honey Cornbread Muffins

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for P.A.N. Cornmeal. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

These tender and sweet cornbread muffins go perfectly with any barbecue or southern style dish!

Growing up with family in Louisiana, I'm used to eating a lot of Southern foods and Southern dishes. Catfish, hush puppies, cornbread, sweet tea....all that delicious stuff. My grandparents lived there during my childhood so I spent a few weeks down there almost every summer. I'm fortunate I learned to cook some of that deliciousness from my grandma and mom, too!

I've always cooked with cornmeal, but I recently discovered a new ingredient that has quickly become my new favorite pantry staple, P.A.N. Cornmeal. Already a staple ingredient in most Venezuelan homes, it's now making its debut in the U.S. and has proven an ideal addition to many American pantries. P.A.N. Cornmeal is the number one cornmeal in South America.

Corn is native to the Americas, but because of its rich nutrients and versatility, cornmeal is a staple in countries all over the world. When you think of cornmeal, most people naturally think of cornbread. I know I do the same. I decided to use P.A.N. as my inspiration to make these delicious Raspberry Honey Cornbread Muffins. Made with fresh buttermilk and local raspberry honey, they are soft, tender, and sweet. If you can't find raspberry honey, no problem. Feel free to use plain honey, or any other flavored honey you can find at your local market.  

This is a quick and easy recipe and these muffins can be on your table in no time. Perfect for breakfast or brunch, or as a side for your barbecue or picnic, the recipe is quite versatile. Enjoy!
