Famous Dave's Corn Bread

Last night at Chay's work party we were catered by Famous Dave's. Since Chay's in HR we were able to take home some of the extra food at the end of the night. We ended up with 2 huge foil pans of Famous Dave's cornbread. Have you had this ever?? Oh my gosh. The best! I can't stop eating it. It is very moist and sweet. My kids love it and so does Chay. I found the actual recipe online not a copycat.

Famous Dave's corn bread muffins

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup stone ground cornmeal
1 (9-ounce) package yellow cake mix
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
Jalapeno honey glaze (recipe below; see note)
Mix yellow cornmeal, stone-ground cornmeal, cake mix, baking powder, salt and cayenne pepper in bowl. Combine milk, buttermilk, oil, eggs, brown sugar and honey in a bowl. Mix well. Add to cornmeal mixture and mix gently. There should be no lumps, but do not overmix. Fold in the mayonnaise. Let rest, covered, in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or overnight.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spoon cold batter into muffin tin or a cast iron skillet. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean and the top is golden brown. Drizzle with jalapeno honey glaze. Yield: 9 servings.
Note: Burress said the restaurant does not use the jalapeno honey glaze. To duplicate the restaurant's glaze, omit jalapeno, red pepper and cayenne pepper.
Jalapeno honey glaze
1/2 cup butter
1 large jalapeno ( 1/8-inch pieces, seeded)
3 tablespoons ( 1/8-inch pieces) red bell pepper
1/4 cup honey
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Heat butter in saucepan until melted. Stir in jalapeno and red pepper. Bring to a simmer. Stir in honey and cayenne. Simmer, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Store, covered, in refrigerator. Reheat before serving. Drizzle over Famous Dave's corn bread muffins.
