TWD- Sweet Corn Muffins

Well, like the TWDers, once I saw this week's pick of Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins, I thought to make chili. But alas, it was 85 degrees here yesterday, and my husband offered to grill chicken instead, so we had sweet corn muffins instead of pepper. Chosen by Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake, one of my favorite blogs, these muffins are WONDERFUL!! I halved the recipe and (accidentally) added more sugar than Dorie suggests in the sidebar. I was afraid they were going to be too sweet (is tha possible?), but they were just fine. Buttery, not too grainy- these are a definite go-to the next time I make chili! My husband thought they were pretty close to our favorite cornbread at Bandera. We might try baking it in a skillet to see if we get similar results. This sweet version would also be wonderful with butter for breakfast!
Check out Rebecca's blog for the recipe!

Sorry for the bad picture. Out kitchen is dark at night.

  5. 85? I'm a tad envious...we are going for a high of 11 on Friday. While it's okay now, the temp is slowly creeping downward. Anyway, the muffins sound great with BBQ chicken. :o)

  12. We are getting some weird crazy heat wave aren't we? I am not digging it. I prefer a mild 75-80s myself. Maybe I just a spoiled CA girl huh? haha. Glad you enjoyed the muffins.
