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
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup whole kernel corn


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, buttermilk and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in corn.
  • 2. Fill greased muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 400° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 8 muffins.

"I read the reviews before making these. Based on the reviews I used a whole can of creamed corn instead of the cup of whole kernel corn. The muffins were delicately sweet. Just perfect. They disappeared rapidly. I will be making these again. Next time I may add some chopped chives from my garden."

"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."
