DH and I loved these little gems. So light but crispy on the outside. Went great with our chili but will be wonderful for snacking also.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F Spray 2 muffin tins with vegetable oil spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl or saucepan, melt the butter.
  4. Whisk the egg lightly while the butter cools a bit, then add the egg, milk, and vanilla extract to the butter.
  5. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the mixed liquid, stirring lightly until just blended. Don't over-mix because the muffins will be tough.
  6. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins. Bake at 400°F for 15-18 minutes, until the muffins have risen, are golden-brown and springy to the touch.
  7. Pop out of the tins and let cool a bit before serving.
