Corn kernels add sunny taste and texture to these moist muffins, a great accompaniment to our summer barbecue. They’re especially good warm, so if I bake them ahead, I warm them on the grill or in the microwave before serving. —Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, New Jersey

"Yum! Whole wheat flour works great. Instead of buttermilk, I used milk that expired a week ago."

"I use a whole can of cream corn instead of just 1 c. and it helps them to be sweeter. I also use canola oil instead of vegetable oil. My family loves them this way."

"They looked beautiful when they came out of the oven but they tasted really bland. I'm still searching for a sweeter corn bread."
