Step 1: Combine Dry Ingredients

First we'll begin by making the cornbread. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl and set it aside.

Step 2: Mix Liquid Ingredients

Mix all of the wet ingredients together in a large bowl until thoroughly blended.

Step 3: Blend Wet and Dry Ingredients

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix until just blended.

Step 4: Baking Pan

Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners and then pour the cornbread mixture into the liners until they are each about 2/3rds full. Do not fill them higher than this, otherwise when they rise they will not stay firm and grow taller, but instead the batter will just spill over the sides and make a mess.

You can also use stand-alone cupcake liners like I did and just place them on a regular baking sheet.

Place the pan in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.

Step 5: Make the Frosting

While the cupcakes are baking prepare the frosting. Mix together the butter and honey until completely combined. Add the powdered sugar and blend until smooth. Set aside.

Step 6: Frost the Cupcakes

When the cupcakes are done, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for at least 30 minutes before frosting.

To frost them, simply spread about 1 tablespoon of the frosting over each cupcake. Enjoy!
