Just the extra 'mmmm' factor to make the the typical corn muffin a gourmet corn muffin. We so appreciated this recipe today paired with our chili. Thank-you!
Tender, moist and flavorful! The chili comes through very lightly. Not too sweet. Onions and cilantro was a yummy touch. Served with carnitas.
Andi love, you know I can't seen to make anything without adjustment so here we go. I omitted the sugar entirely and used 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour with a 1/2 cup of unbleached white. The cheese was fat reduced. Loved the use of buttermilk and sour cream (fat free) along with the onions, chili powder and cilantro. The texture came out light and perfect, the flavor is marvelous!
These are AWESOME Ms Andi! We loved the onion and chili flavor. I made these gluten free, using GF flour, and had to sub some things as I didn't check the pantry before I started mixing: I subbed yogurt for the sour cream, applesauce for the oil, and the muffins still came out wonderfully moist and flavorful. A definite keeper recipe that came together quickly and baked up beautifully! Made for EVERYDAY IS A HOLIDAY TAG, January 2010!
I made these to go with soup for lunch and they were a tasty accompaniment. We liked all the savor flavors - the onion, chili powder, and cilantro. There was a little too much brown sugar for our tastes, with all the great flavors.
WOW!! Everyone rated these a 10! I made a double batch, as directed, though I forgot to add the cilantro at the end. Nonetheless, they were terrific. I will be making these again, soon. Thanks for sharing this marvelous recipe.
I agree with Nimzy wholeheartedly that these are really good, moist and delish. I have made many a recipe for cornmuffins and these stand out. Since I am a sweet freak, I"m going to go out on a limb and say it's the added brown sugar. A first for me in making cornmuffins. I did add the optional chili powder too which I think came thru just perfectly. I did omit the onion(s) listed per families request. I didn't have fresh cilantro (I know...I wish I had) and so used 1/2 t. of dried. These went very well with my dinner of steaks on the grill and baked potatoes. Made for I Recommend~
OMG Ms Andi, these are outstanding corn muffins. Just the right amount of sweetness. I really thought they were going to have a very powerful onion flavor, but it was just perfect for us. Loved the hint of chili powder too. I used lowfat buttermilk and light sour cream and left out the cilantro for personal preferences. This will be great with any soups, stews or chili dishes this winter. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for LiveStrong :)
