Raspberry Corn Bread Muffins

These are my son's favorites. He calls them "surprise muffins" because I pipe raspberry preserves into their centers. He likes them so much that sometimes I bake them in jumbo muffin tins, adding more preserves than I do for the regular size. -Sue Santulli, Sea Girt, New Jersey

  • Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 17-19 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

    These are definitely a family favorite! They are so easy to make and it works great as a cornbread in a baking dish too! The baking time will need to be adjusted accordingly if you do it in the dish. Great recipe!

    I've been making these delicious muffins for over 10 years and they're definitely a family favorite! As a Volunteer Field Editor for TOH, I highly recommend them!

    I'm not a big cornmeal person but these muffins are to die for. I used strawberry jam instead of the raspberry preserves since that was what I had on hand. NOT for someone who is calorie conscious, they are very buttery.
