Corn and Molasses Muffins

"These are sweet cornmeal muffins (not too sweet), with a cake-like texture. They'd be good with some currants or raisins added, too, I'd bet. I like them unadulterated and unadorned, though...I don't even think they need butter. I got this from "Enchanted Broccoli Forest," by the way."

Ready In:




  • Preheat the oven 375°F Lightly grease 12 muffin cups.
  • Whisk together the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Make a well in the center.
  • In a separate container, beat together the remaining ingredients. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients, and stir just enough to combine thoroughly.
  • Fill the muffin cups just up to the edge of the pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove the muffins from the pan right away, and cool on a rack for at least 10 minutes before eating.

  1. So... I'm reading a novel, and the characters are having Molasses Corn muffins<br/>with their coffee! So I had to have one. Was it a real thing? Yes, here it<br/>was. And... they're delicious. Totally satisfied the craving. Good book, too. :)<br/>(Robert B. Parker's Spare Change)
  2. These muffins turned out exactly how I'd imagined them. They rose nicely with a peak on top and had a good structure inside. I only used 3 tbs. molasses (since mine was backstrap) and added the cinnamon. I added some grated carrot/raisins in some and my husband really liked those! This would be a great muffin to go with soups, stews, too. I got 12 muffins (as the recipe states). Thanks Aunt Cookie, for a delicious muffin with my morning tea. Roxygirl


I wandered onto Recipezaar less than a year ago, looking for a lentil soup recipe. I'm pretty sure I haven't left the computer since then...I've been completely sucked in by this site! Of course, I do take the occasional break to actually cook the recipes I find. When I'm not at my computer or in the kitchen, I'm working toward my PhD in clinical psychology from Kent State. I also work as a therapist at the campus clinic, teach a class (Social Psychology this semester), and work as a research assistant. I'm a little bit busy. I do usually find time every day to cook something for myself with the help of this site, and to exercise (to counteract the effects of the great recipes I find here). I don't have much time in my life for hobbies at the moment (sigh), but I seem to recall that I used to like reading, going to see musical performances, and watching movies. I still do my best to travel as much as possible. My sister, Kate, my boyfriend, Jake, and my friend, Kris, are my favorite travel partners. Kate and I go on an "eatacation" every year. The picture above is (from left) Andrea, me, and Kris, on our first annual Tacky Tourist Weekend.
