Corn Muffins


Corn Muffins

I am all about eating healthier now that the Holidays are over.  But I have to be real about it.  I can not going to completely give up sweets, that is just not realistic.  It might work for a couple days (if that), but then I will go overboard and eat everything in sight.  This goes for more than just sweets, I am an everything in moderation kind of girl.  Although sometimes I should probably re-evaluate what “moderation” really means.

In my house we don’t have soup without bread.  That is just a rule I have, and since I do the cooking I can enforce it.   We also don’t have chili without cornbread.  They just go together in my mind, and even when trying to eat better, I won’t sacrifice my bread!   This time I made my favorite corn bread recipe into muffins instead of a big “pie”.  That way I could have my one corn muffin and be done.  Perfect compromise in my mind.

This corn bread is moist and sweet.  It makes 12 muffins, or one 9 inch cake pan.  It is thick and hearty, like corn bread should be!  I used to buy the packets of corn muffin mix, but then I found out how easy it is to make at home.  And it is so much better.  You could add in jalapenos, corn, bacon, cheese, green onions etc.  This is a great stand alone bread, but it would be great to spice up as well.
