Dense and crunchy, just like the description says. Hearty, not sweet muffin that's especially good with soup or stew. My son slathered his with honey and was a happy camper. I used 2 cups cornmeal and would try 1 3/4 cup next time since I found them a bit dry. Lowfat and good for you, too. I'll make these again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Dh liked these so much he threatened to bite into each muffin so that no one else would eat them. And he's a grown man. I didn't tell him about the pureed prunes and he'll never suspect. I did double the sugar to ensure that he'd like them and it certainly worked, although I don't think the sugar had much to do with it. These are great corn muffins, BrotherAdso.
