The little man of the house LOVES cornbread, it's got to be the most requested item after waffles and hot chocolate! So i've been looking around for more ways to use cornmeal and here is one of the recipes i found to try.....
Sweet Cornbread Muffins
Original recipe from Eating Out Loud
Recipe below is how i made them =)
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup oil
1 cup milk
In a large mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add beaten egg, oil and milk, stirring until just combined.
Fill muffin cups 1/2 full, then put a small dollop of strawberry jam in the centre, 1/2 tsp for mini's, 1 tsp for large muffins. Then top the muffins with more batter until they are 3/4 full.
Bake at 400F (200C) for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
(mini muffins took about 10 mins)
Allow the muffins to cool slightly before removing from the muffin tin.
These are delicious while still warm!
