Delicious corn muffins with a bit of a kick. You may want to adjust the amount of heat in these muffins by adding or decreasing the amount of jalapenos -- six seems to be the right amount for us. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (July, 1987).

The kernel corn in these muffins made them moiset enough and I liked the jalapenos. But, I think I would like them sweeter. Perhaps I'll put a bit of sugar on top next time I make them.
