I don't like my cornmeal muffins to be really crunchy, so I warmed up the milk and let the cornmeal soak. I ended up with a muffin that's crispy on the outside and just the right texture on the inside. These tasted just like the ones I first made in home ec. class. If you like the idea of cornmeal muffins but not the texture (gritty) these are for you. They are for us.

Wonderful! I was a little worried because my batter seemed exceptionally runny. But, the finished product was exactly as described - crispy on the outside & moist & creamy tasting on the inside!

Fabulous corn muffins! The batter was so thin I wasn't sure how they would bake up, but they turned out fine. I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of all purpose, but that was my only change.
