Cheddar Corn Muffins

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by AustinMama

I found this recipe in a cookbook called. Quick Vegetarian Pleasures. Makes 12 muffins. "These are light and moist, with a mild but irresistible cheese accent. They are equally good served for breakfast or with chili. If you want a more traditional corn muffin, just leave out the cheese."

perfect cornmeal muffins. I used soft whole wheat flour instead of the unbleached flour. Also used soymilk- I added about 1/4 cup extra. Decreased the sugar (I used organic cane sugar). These were so tasty and moist with just the right amount of sweetness and the cheddar was the perfect touch.
