Old Fashioned Sweet Corn Muffins

Maggie May Schill


My husband and I were having this long discussion about corn bread of all things. He like jalapeno corn breads and other savory corn breads. While on the other hand I like sweet corn bread. Well that conversation sparked a craving for corn bread. Messed around a bit with some corn-meal and came up with these muffins. So basically I totally disregarded his feelings and opted to make sweet corn muffins.

How to Make Old Fashioned Sweet Corn Muffins


  1. Preheat oven to 400'F
  2. Grease; or line with baking cups, one muffin pan.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, corn meal, salt, sugar and baking powder.
  4. Slowly mix in eggs, milk and vegetable oil. Beat with a hand mixer on high for 30 seconds.
  5. Let sit for 4 minutes before pouring out into muffin pan. (this waiting time will help the muffins crown a bit better in the end.)
  6. Pour out into muffin pan evenly.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

    Eat them cooled or hot. They are awesome hot with some butter! I ate them with caramel sauce later on and it was awesome!
