You guys!! How is it already Thanksgiving week??? I still have tonnnnssssss of Fall recipes stashed away that I was hoping to share before Thanksgiving. 😱

So I guess I’d better get to it! Starting with this amazing pumpkin cornbread with maple cinnamon butter.

Do you remember these pumpkin cornmeal pancakes from last year? I was (am) slightly OBSESSED with that recipe. I seriously made them like 6 or 7 times last pumpkin season. Slathered with melt-y butter and maple syrup… mmmmmmmMMM 😋.

It is THE best thing ever.

This year I decided that I really wanted to revisit those same flavors and textures, and cornbread was the obvious direction to take. By incorporating the maple syrup into a butter, this recipe achieves all the same amazing flavors I loved from the pancakes!

And this isn’t just any old maple butter (although… is there such a thing?). This is the Texas Roadhouse Cinnamon Honey Butter copycat recipe (which I am also obsessed with), but subbing in maple for the honey. You guys. It’s seriously unbelievable. You are going to lose your minds over this, I swear it.

I’m practically squealing just looking at the pictures 😍!!

Soft, tender cornbread bursting with pumpkin and fall spices topped with a sweet and creamy maple butter. And the way that butter seeps into the cornbread when it melts?

*swoon* 😍😍😍😍

If I had to give you just one piece of advice when it comes to this recipe… don’t skimp on the butter! My recipe makes a pretty large batch. And there’s no pretending that we’re eating a salad or anything here. So just load ‘er up, sit back, and ENJOY!

Happy Thanksgiving week y’all!
