Corn Muffins

The recipe for perfect cornbread continues to elude me. I was in the mood to bake some muffins the other night, and I have a ton of cornmeal to use up. So I decided to break out my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook and give their recipe for cornbread a try. I find that I don't use my cookbooks a lot, and this particular cookbook does not get the attention it deserves. It's one of those cookbooks that is a staple in any kitchen. There are so many timeless, classic recipes in there, and I always seem to forget about it.

I'm glad I tried this recipe because it is quite good and very easy to throw together. It's a little crumbly for my liking, but still very tasty. And definitely still worth trying. I will definitely make these again.

Corn Muffins (source: Better Homes and Gardens 75th Anniversary Edition Cookbook)

3/4 cup cornmeal
2-3 tbsps sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder

2 beaten eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup cooking oil or melted butter

In a medium bowl stir together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt; set aside.

In a small bowl combine eggs, milk and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened.

  1. Cornbread is such a tricky thing! There are sooo many styles and preferences. I suggest trying Piday's "Double Corn CornMuffins" next. Branny

  2. These look so good. I love eating warm cornbread muffins in the morning with some butter and maple syrup on them. So good.

  3. My husband LOVES cornbread, I haven't made it for a while. I will have to try this recipe out!

  4. I just made these corn muffins this weekend! I used all whole wheat flour and they actually turned out very good. Your blondies look great too. :)

  5. I am a big time muffin lover and love to try making and eating different types of muffins anytime. Those muffins are indeed looking delicious but I like chocolate muffins more that I learnt baking at Nom Live Video App for cooking.
