  • Corn muffins are typically sweeter than cornbread muffins. Corn muffins can be eaten as a dessert. Cornbread muffins are typically topped with butter and served with a meal. 

How Can I Make My Cornbread Muffins Lighter and Fluffier?

  • Use a leavening agent to make your bread rise more and cause them to be lighter and fluffier. Baking soda and baking powder good leavening agents for bread.  You’ll have to use just the right amount though. Try to stick to the recipe when it comes to a leavening agent or you can do some research from other recipes to see what works well for them. Too much will cause them to rise too quickly. Too little and they won’t raise enough
