Tips on making this pumpkin cornbread with spiced honey butter:
Make sure that you preheat the oven before anything else. That way, once everything is prepared, you can simply place the cornbread in the oven without waiting for it to heat up.
Know your oven! It’s important to know whether your oven runs cold or hot when baking. This will prevent you from burning your food, and will also help you from undercooking it.
