I have made these muffins twice now with great success both times. They make an excellent change of pace over regular corn muffins and really don't add anything to the prep time. I recommend trying these, as they are worth the extra minute it takes to throw them together.
The first occasion I made them for was for Thanksgiving dinner where I made 2 double batches using the Jiffy mix. After hearing the comment "These are Great! What is in these Muffins?" coming from around the table, I knew I found a winner.
On the second occasion I made a double batch using Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix Copycat in place of the jiffy mix, and to go with Panera's Cream Cheese Potato Soup .
On both occasions, due to the tastes of other diners, I substituted Chili Powder for the Chipotle Powder. But being a Chipotle fan myself I know they would be even better without the substitution. I also cut back a tiny bit on the milk (1/2 cup instead of 2/3 for a double batch) due to the extra liquid in the creamed corn. BTW I make double batches because I would rather have leftover muffins hanging around the house than a 1/2 can of Creamed Corn .
I will be making these often and I will be considering trying some add-ins such as green chillies and or some cheese.
These were really good, great combination of add-ins. You would never guess this is from a cheap little mix. Very tender and so rich they did not need any added butter when serving. I served these with chili.
I just made these delicious muffins to go with corn chowder. They were moist and pleasantly spicy. The cinnamon added a nice little extra something that made everyone ask "What is that?" We will definitely be having these again.
