If you have not had muffins made with corn flour or corn meal before, try this recipe for Cornbread Muffins. If you use corn meal, there is also a very unique texture to the muffins that comes from the coarse texture. This recipe does call for corn meal. Do not substitute corn flour, which is much more finely ground. You will miss the lovely texture that the corn meal can contribute to the muffins. These muffins are easy to make, and taste great when they are served fresh out of the oven with loads of butter and honey.
Corn meal muffins are a great complement to chile and other highly seasoned dishes with a Mexican flair. The slightly sweet flavor of the corn meal perfectly sets off the deeper and more piquant nature of the hot dishes. Try them together, and slather the corn muffins with lots of butter and honey. It is perfect.
These muffins are easy to make. They do not rise as high as some muffins because the corn meal is quite dense. Don’t worry. The corn meal more than makes up in flavor and texture as well as a beautiful yellow color that it gives to the muffins. These muffins are easy enough for a beginner as long as you give some help at the oven. So get the up and coming cook or baker in the house to put these together for every one. They are best blended by hand, and then only just enough to ensure that everything is blended. Do not over mix as that will result in a dry and tough muffin. Enjoy this recipe soon. Your family will love it, especially if you serve it with lots of butter and honey. Yum.
