These turned out beautifully. They held together and didn't crumble as corn muffins tend to. Unfortunately the family prefers a sweet corn muffin and not savory. I may make them again because the texture was so nice but maybe with a bit of sugar or even honey added.
I made these to serve with Poblano Chicken Chowder (Poblano Chicken Chowder) and both my husband & I enjoyed them very much. They were the perfect pairing with the chowder. I did reduce the cayenne pepper to about 1/8 teaspoon as I thought 1/2 teaspoon might be a bit much. I used buttermilk self-rising cornmeal and loved the little "tartness" from it and the sour cream.
