I was trying to think of a fun cupcake flavor to make for The 4th of July when I came up with these little beauties. I should have been preparing for The Farmers' Market this coming Saturday...but it seems like my BEST ideas always come to me when I have other "stuff" on my plate. I've learned by now that my mind won't be able to focus on anything until I tackle said-new-idea....so I went with it!
Naturally I thought the new flavor should be something that would fit in at a backyard BBQ. We LOVE Cornbread around here. My cornbread recipe is already pretty sweet (of course)...so I took those same basic concepts and decided to put them in cupcake form .
The end result were these delicious
Sweet Cornbread and Honey Cupcakes!
I used my basic yellow cupcake batter as the base, added yellow cornmeal, Noble Bee Honey from the Amana Colonies, and some yummy creamed corn.
After the cupcakes cooled I added MORE honey to the top of each one. Then, to finish, I topped them with an UBER YUMMY Noble Bee Honey Buttercream Frosting.
We took a pile of them along with us to our 4th of July gathering and they were VERY well-received....which always makes me happy! One person even compared the cupcake to Famous Dave's Cornbread Muffins...I took a few without frosting. I've never had the Famous Dave's version, but I was told that it's a compliment to be compared to them :)
I will be taking these with me to market this weekend...so see....I really wasn't procrastinating...I was preparing for market all along!
