Muffin Monday - Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins

Another pumpkin recipe this morning!  I made these to go with our Pumpkin Chili, and they were just perfect!  Sweet yet cornbready, I could easily eat these alone for breakfast as well.

1 1/4 c flour
3/4 c cornmeal
2/3 c light brown sugar
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t cinnamon
3/4 c pumpkin
3/4 c buttermilk
1/4 c butter, melted
2 eggs, room temperature
2 T honey
turbinado sugar for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350 and prepare muffin tins with cooking spray or muffin liners.  Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Combine wet ingredients in a second mixing bowl.  Combine wet and dry until just moistened and pour into prepared muffin tins.  Sprinkle sugar over the top and bake for 20-25 minutes (12-15 if using mini tins) or until edges have just begun to color.

The Motherload

If you don't have buttermilk, just add a tablespoon of lemon juice to every 1 cup of regular milk and let sit for 5 minutes.
