  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (or use white whole wheat or part whole wheat)
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne (or substitute desired “heat” using Tabasco Sauce, red pepper flakes or small amount minced jalapeno pepper)
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 7/8 cup milk (3/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons)
  • 1/3 cup cooking oil
  • 1 can (8 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained (or substitute equivalent amount frozen whole corn, cooked and drained)
  • 1 can (4.5 ounces) diced green chiles, drained


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat a 12-cup muffin pan with vegetable spray or line with paper liners and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, cayenne, and cheese. In a smaller bowl, lightly beat the egg; add the milk, oil, corn, and chiles, and mix together. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring just until combined. Fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full of batter (My batch had enough extra batter for 2 more muffins.)
  3. Bake 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of muffin comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan and continue cooling on the rack.

      Hi Salad Foodie:
      These muffins sound tasty. Since I am going to make a bunch of chili soon and freeze it in containers these will make a nice accompaniment. I like the addition of corn and diced green chiles. I have added the post to my Try Soon folder. Thanks for sharing!
      Best Regards,
