You can’t have a great barbecue without Grill Baked Corn Muffins to go along with it. I’ve been leery of making cornbread/corn muffins since I have about a 50% success rate when it comes to victoriously baking this beautiful barbecued side dish. They’re either perfection incarnate – like these ones – or resemble a dried out kitchen sponge. This recipe is easy, quick, and yields results that are undeniably delicious. Try this no-fail recipe today for your next cookout. You won’t be disappointed.

Grill Baked Corn Muffins

Serves: Makes 16       Total Time: 25 Minutes


  • 1½ cups of all purpose flour  
  • 1 cup of cornmeal 
  •  ½ cup of sugar 
  •  1 tbsp. baking powder 
  •  ½ tsp. salt 
  •  ½ cup of butter, melted 
  •  1 cup of milk 
  •  2 large eggs 
  •  ¼ cup of honey  
  • 2 tbsp. Balkan style or plain greek yogurt


Step 1
Preheat your grill to 400°F, preparing for indirect grilling by turning on the two outside burners to medium (on a 4 burner grill).
Step 2
Use silicone baking cups, or spray a muffin tin with nonstick.
Step 3
In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix them thoroughly together.
Step 4
In a large measuring cup whisk together the melted butter, milk, eggs, honey, and yogurt.
Step 5
Fold the wet ingredients into the dry, but don’t over mix.
Step 6
Measure about ¼ cup of batter into each muffin cup, filling each cup ¾ of the way full.
Step 7
Bake the corn muffins using indirect heat for 12 to 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean and they are golden around the edges.
Step 8
Allow the corn muffins to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before removing them from the muffin tin and eating.
Step 9
Try them warmed with butter, and drizzled with honey for a sweet treat.
These Grill Baked Corn Muffins are on the sweet side, but that won’t stop you from pairing them with your best rib recipe, or that amazing BBQ brisket. Sweeten things up by drizzling with honey (try our smoked honey recipe!) and serving this with frozen yogurt instead. The possibilities are endless with these delicious Grill Baked Corn Muffins! 

Happy Grilling!
