This is as good as any cornbread I have made. I used Greek yogurt because that's what I had, about a tablespoon more than called for. I figured that since it's thicker than regular yogurt it might need a tad more. For the flour I used 1/4 cup whole wheat and 3/4 cup white. I didn't have liquid buttermilk so I used buttermilk powder with regular lowfat milk. Also subbed maple syrup for the sugar (that is something I do in a lot of recipes). Finally I halved the amount of salt to 1/2 teaspoon, which was plenty as far as my taste goes. This recipe made 14 standard size muffins for me. I filled the cups about 3/4 full and they rose to fill the cups nicely. I baked them in a pre-heated 350 oven for 15 minutes. Next time I'll check them at 14 minutes. While 15 minutes didn't over bake them, any additional time would have.
I'll make this again, all in all I was pretty pleased with it, especially considering they are low fat.
Delicious recipe! I meant to make three quarters of the recipe to only get eight muffins. I used three fourths of everything, except for buttermilk. I should've used 3/4 c. but I forgot and used 1 c. by mistake. I realized my mistake right before I put these in the oven and was afraid that they wouldn't work. But really, I got nine of the best corn muffins I've ever made! They weren't flat like regular corn muffins and weren't overly sweet. And I love that they're healthier than normal. Next time I may try using some whole wheat flour, while still using an extra 1/4. cup of buttermilk. Thanks for sharing!
Great recipe! I halved it to get 6 muffins, next time I'll grease the pans a bit better since they stuck some.
