Famous Dave's Corn Bread Muffins

Famous Dave's is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. I'm in love with their corn bread muffins. They are perfection in my book. I've been trying to duplicate them for years. I found this recipe on-line and after tweaking it 3-4 times, it's about perfect. .

Famous Dave's Corn Bread Muffins
1-1/2 C yellow cornmeal
1/2 C stone ground cornmeal
9 oz pkg yellow cake mix (half a regular box mix)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 C milk
1/2 C buttermilk
1/4 C vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 Tb brown sugar
2 Tb honey
1 Tb real mayonnaise
Honey Glaze (see below)

Mix all dry ingredients together. Mix all wet ingredients (except mayo) together and add them to the dry and mix gently until there are no lumps, being careful not to over-mix. Fold in mayonnaise and let it rest, covered in the fridge for 30 minutes or overnight.

Bake at 400* for 25-30 minutes. Drizzle with honey butter. Makes about 18 muffins.

Honey Butter
1/2 C butter
1/4 C honey

Melt butter in pan and add honey. Simmer, stirring occasionally.
