What’s the difference between cornbread and corn muffins?

Do you know the difference between cornbread and corn muffins? A lot of people think they’re the same thing, but there is a big difference! Cornbread is usually made with cornmeal, while corn muffins use flour. Cornbread is also usually baked in a skillet, while corn muffins are typically baked in a muffin tin.

Can You Make This Recipe Into Cornbread

Yes, don’t want muffins, add the batter to a baking pan, bake at 320 degrees F, and air fry until the cornbread is fully cooked.

How do you keep cornbread from drying out?

The only reason why your cornbread would be dried out would be that it has been overcooked. So, remember to watch your cornbread frequently as it cooks up. Once you can remove a toothpick in the center of your corn muffin, without wet batter, you can remove them.
