Morrell’s Cornbread with Cinnamon Butter

November 17, 2021 By Alexa Jackson-Presley and Morrell Presley, Owners, Morrell’s BBQ

Our family loves cornbread! It pairs well with so many of the dishes we make, such as beef stew or chili, collard greens, and of course, our smoked meats.  This is one of our favorite recipes for cornbread and an easy cinnamon butter to smother on top.

Cornbread with Cinnamon Butter


1-1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cornmeal
2/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking soda
½ salt
5 tablespoons salted butter, melted
1 - ¼ cup milk
¼ cup of vegetable oil
2 large eggs


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, add butter/non-stick spray to a 19 inch pan or use a muffin pan. In a large bowl, mix ingredients until mixture is smooth and pours into pans.  Bake for 30 – 45 minutes and check for the muffins to be golden brown. Use a toothpick to ensure that the inside is cooked all the way through.

Cinnamon Butter


½ cup of salted butter
¼ cup honey
¼ cup confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon (or more if you like) of cinnamon


Let the butter soften at room temperature, then blend softened butter until smooth, add honey, cinnamon, and whip until smooth and creamy.
