This is, without a doubt the best corn muffin I've made to date. I followed this recipe exactly and the result was 12 good size muffins, which are moist, with just the right amount of sweetness. They were a hit with my family. Thanks for sharing!!
I've make these often out of the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook. They're fantastic and freeze well. They are not too sweet. Great combination of savory and lightly sweet.
I made this recipe twice. I was asked to send in 24 mini corn muffins for my daughter's third grade class. My daughter is allergic to eggs, so I used Ener-G egg replacer. The first attempt was delicious! A perfect accompaniment to chili. But I was worried that they would not be sweet enough for a breakfast treat for 8-year-olds. Also, I used paper liners in the muffin pan and the baked muffins would not separate from the papers. So, I tried again, this time increasing the sugar to 1/2 cup and I omitted the paper liners. Also delicious! A perfect breakfast treat. In all, I was able to make 67 mini muffins with one recipe. They baked perfectly in 10 minutes.
