I wanted a corn muffin recipe I could double and triple easily to bring to our Thanksgivings this year. Finances are tight so I wanted to make something that tasted and looked more expensive and gourmet than it really was. I remembered having some delicious gourmet corn muffins at a breakfast a few years ago with real corn kernels that were very sweet and moist and I wanted to make that deliciousness for everyone else. They turned out wonderful and picky DBF requested I make them again. Major compliments everywhere. A definite crowd pleaser!!!! (and very simple per Jiffy box). I recommend doubling the ingredients to make 16 because these are yummy and disappear fast! :) I made 5 batches for thanksgiving so $2.15 for the 5 Jiffy boxes $1.00 for the eggs (and I had extras to make breakfast for days) $1.50 for the cans of creamed corn and I had milk, honey, and spices on hand. I spent about $4.65 for 40 yummy corn muffins so not too shabby! I guess I'm sort of the "Frugal Gourmet." lol
