Banana Cornbread with Cinnamon Creamed Honey

I had this awesome idea in my head. . . Banana Cornbread.

I really wanted some Pumpkin Cornbread, but to most people, it isn't pumpkin season and it seemed more "Summery" to try a banana version.  

This is a beautiful marriage between two of my favorites, Banana Bread and Cornbread.  It has the texture of cornbread, but the flavor of banana bread.  And - it is so moist.

Plus, sometimes we just need something new to try with our over-ripe bananas.
I was going to serve it with Cinnamon Honey Butter, but I forgot to get the butter out to soften, so I grabbed the Creamed Honey out of the pantry instead.

Awesome decision :)
Have you ever had a Creamed Honey and Peanut Butter Sandwich before?  You should make one for yourself (or your kids) and you will be in for a real treat.

Creamed honey can be found by the regular honey, jam and peanut butter in your grocery store.  

This would also be AMAZING smothered in:

I have made mini muffins and regular cornbread with this recipe and I love both.  Mini muffins are a lot easier to pack in lunches, but I like a big, thick slice of regular cornbread on a Sunday afternoon!
