Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl stir together flour, 3 T yellow cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
  3. Stir together beaten egg yolk, milk and melted butter.
  4. Add all at once to the dry ingredients, stirring just till moistened.
  5. Line two 6-ounce custard cups with paper baking cups.
  6. Fill cups 2/3rds full.
  7. Sprinkle a little additional cornmeal atop muffins.
  8. Micro-cook, uncovered, on 100% power about 45 seconds or till done, rearranging once. (When done, the surface may appear moist but a wooden pick inserted near the center should come out clean.).

These are amazing. I have a microwave corn bread that is prepared similar to these muffins. I loved how incredibly quick and easy these are!!!! I also loved that it only made 2 muffins. The muffins are soft and moist. 1 tbsp sugar was a touch too sweet as a meal corn muffin (instead of a dessert type corn muffin) for my likings, but that is easily adjusted. These muffins rose nice and high. I will definitely be making these again!!!!

This is so easy and really quick! I love the idea of making just 2 muffins from start to finish in under 5 minutes. Butter in place of the oil I think would make for a much more tasty muffin.
