Breads and Muffins / Sides

Honey Cinnamon Cornbread

 Happy belated New Year! We’ve been enjoying the break from school and work around here. My daughter spent most of the week with family, and I just got her back yesterday.

My husband and I went to see Star Wars Wednesday night, and decided it had been too long since we watched the originals. Last night we watched A New Hope with dinner, and amazingly enough, my daughter watched it with us and decided it actually wasn’t boring. When I showed it to her the first time when she was 6 or 7, she was not a fan. We were starting to wonder if she was switched at birth… πŸ™‚ Apparently she just wasn’t old enough, thankfully.


Our week of leftovers and kitchen experiments finished off with some leftover chili and this cornbread. It’s a bit sweet with a nice touch of spice from the cinnamon. It’s been well liked at two potlucks, and I’ve tried it with three different kinds of chili.


It’s fairly quick to throw together. I made squares, but it would also make nice corn muffins. πŸ™‚


Between the applesauce and the greek yogurt, it’s healthier than most cornbread, and very moist.
