1cupfinely ground cornmeal(I used Pan, a white cornmeal, but any cornmeal will work)
Pinchof cayenne pepper(optional but great if like a little extra heat)
⅓cuplight brown sugar,packed
2jalapeño peppers,seeds removed & chopped

Preheat oven to 425° degrees. Spray a 12-count muffin pan with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cayenne, if using.
Place butter in a large microwave-safe measuring cup. Heat for 1 minute then stir until all butter is melted. Whisk in oil, brown sugar and honey to the butter and stir. Add egg, buttermilk, chopped jalapenos and green onions. Continue whisking until well blended.
Add butter mixture to dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
Scoop into prepared muffin pan.
Bake in 425 degree oven for 5 minutes then turn heat down to 350 degrees and bake an additional 15-17 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Loosen sides with silicone spatula then invert into basket. Serve warm with butter.
