12 muffins

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup medium cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 pound unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 extra-large eggs

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix the flour, sugar, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, melted butter, and eggs. With the mixer on the lowest speed, pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones and stir until they are just blended. Spoon the batter into the paper liners, filling each one to the top. Bake for 30 minutes, until the tops are crisp and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool slightly and remove from the pan.

DELICIOUS, fast and easy !!! Thank you Ina !! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Too sweet, more like a breakfast muffin then a compliment for chili. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not bad... At first I thought they were perfect, but after muffins cooled they became very dry and crumbly. Someone once told me that more butter doesn't equal moist. So, I think I should've added a bit of oil to maintain moisture level. Good flavor, still better than boxed stuff. item not reviewed by moderator and published
First time making corn muffins, from scratch. I seen all the reviews, too add this, and that, and switch this for that. I just followed the recipe. came out delish. I will try next time to add cream corn, and reduce the flour half cup and add half cup of corn meal. and all the left over batter put in loaf pan and greased with veg oil, very little. now I have corn bread also. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I bought a Wilton texas muffin pan a while ago so I think this recipe is perfect for this pan. In reading the comments I did make a few modifications. I used 2cups flour, 2cups yellow course corn meal, 3 large eggs, 2.5 cups sugar and 1tsp vanilla. The result was the sweetness was spot on. As others pointed out they were a little crumbly, but nothing drastic. Its not like they were falling apart when cut. I'd make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Well, I have never even thought of making corn muffins. But, I always watch Ina whenever her programme is on in the UK. So, I made these a few weeks ago. Absolutely great! We don't have many of the jumbo size muffin holders. At least I haven't seen that many, even searching on the internet. I used a larger size case, which of course made more muffins. So what? The more the merrier! They were delicious. Baked them for 20-25 mins, so of course they were baked enough. They were no doubt smaller than Ina's so didn't need a longer bake! I do have a fan oven, so adjusted the heat accordingly. Electric fan oven UK, is 160o, Did enjoy them. Frozen some and they too defrosted perfectly. Home baking is no comparison to shop bought packet stuff! Who wouldn't love these? !!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent recipe! I cut the recipe in half and mixed the batter by hand and it worked nicely. This reduced clean- up time. Will definitely make again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
If you have any cooking capabilities, if you follow the recipe, they will turn out amazing. I only had skim milk on hand, rather than whole milk, and they were delish. I didn't change anything other than cooking time. My muffins (batch of 12 and then a batch of 9) were done in 24 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Move over Jiffy mix. Easy to make and GOOD. item not reviewed by moderator and published
You got your measurements backwards. You need 3 cups of cornmeal to 1 cup of flour otherwise they're just rolls that happen to ha v e a little cornmeal in them - not corn bread. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Forgot to add that I got 6 texas sized muffins and 5 regular muffins. The regular muffins were made with one of those silicone muffin pans that have a kind of deep well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
