Sunny Corn Bread Muffins Recipe

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
