Jalapeno Corn Muffins Recipe

Jalapeno Corn Muffins Recipe

These zesty muffins pair beautifully with soups and stews, or they make a delicious eye-opening breakfast or lunchbox treat. Golden and savory, bursting with the late-summer goodness of corn, Jalapeno Corn Muffins are sweetened with a hint of honey and so versatile you’ll want to make them all fall and winter long.

1 1/4 cup stone-ground yellow cornmeal
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 egg
4 tablespoons safflower oil or melted butter
1 tablespoon mild-flavored honey
1 1/2 cup milk
1-2 jalapeno peppers, to taste, seeded and chopped
1 cup fresh corn kernels (use thawed frozen if fresh corn is unavailable)

1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Butter muffin tins.

2. Sift together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder and sea salt.

3. In another bowl beat together the egg, oil or melted butter, honey, and milk. Stir in the chopped jalapenos and fresh or thawed frozen corn.

4. Quickly stir the wet ingredients into the dry, being careful not to stir too much. Spoon into muffin tins (this is a runny batter) and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until firm and beginning to brown. Serve hot, or cool on racks.

Makes 15 muffins.

Add some cheese & Ur really sayin' sumpin'!

Never forget how i learned it's the seeds & membrane that are what's "HOT." A friend from Mexico was about to add jalapenos to a skillet of olive oil & onions, & suggested i try them. After much coaxing i did, & i've been hooked ever since. EZ to adjust the "heat" by however much of the "innerds" are incorporated into the recipe. The green or red flesh is high in vitamin C & other goodies. Been thinkin' of adding to ice cream -- really like a bit of "heat" in absolutely everything else.

I actually did this on my own before this article. Jalapenos are delicious in corn muffins, now I will add the honey, hot sweet and savory
