"Everyone loves these. I did make minor adjustment reducing the corn meal to 3/4 cup and increasing all purpose flour to 1 3/4 cup. It was a little too grainy otherwise."

"I made these delicious muffins and took them to a chili Cook-Off as a "side." They were a hit! Very tasty, moist and the cranberries and nuts really gave the corn muffin a tangy taste and nice texture. I will definitely bake them again!! Nancy S. from Larue, Texas"
