I've tried many corn muffin recipes, but had yet to find one we really liked. I've also been looking for things to make with corn meal, because a couple of weeks ago, I needed a tiny bit for a recipe and the grocery store around the corner only had gigantic bags. So, last time we had chili, I searched again for a new recipe to try. I found this one via Tracey's Culinary Adventures (fantastic recipes and even better photography!)
Well. Dora declared them the best ones she's ever had and has asked to make them again about once a day since we ran out. I opted to omit the corn kernels, because, blech, and nutmeg. I didn't have buttermilk on hand, so I did the ol' milk plus lemon juice substitution (thanks, red & white cookbook!) and they turned out just fine. This one is definitely a keeper!
