Corn Muffin Recipe

Corn muffin has become one of my favorite baked goodies ever since I first tasted it at a restaurant many many years ago. But I don’t remember my folks making it at home because of the scarcity of the ingredients particularly the cornmeal. Thankfully, Iloilo has been improving in terms of economy therefore giving ways for businesses to open including a few baking supply stores.

Cornmeal, and other baking ingredients and tools, can be bought at Chefs and Bakers located in Mandurriao, Iloilo. For less than Php 100, a pack can yield at least 100 pieces of medium-sized corn muffin.

Here's the dry ingredients.

Dry ingredients added into butter and sugar mixture.

Corn Muffin Recipe

3/4 cup yellow cornmeal

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup fresh milk

8 ounces whole kernel corn, drained

1/2 cup butter

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup honey

2 pieces raw eggs

1/2 teaspoon salt

2. Place the butter in a mixing bowl then beat until the texture becomes creamy.

3. Gradually add the granulated sugar and continue beating until the butter and sugar are mixed thoroughly.

4. Gradually add the dry ingredients (mixture of flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt) while beating.

6. Put in the corn and mix with other ingredients.

9. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

10. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Last Christmas, my husband found these festive paper liners so he got a couple of designs and used them when we made for his family. We also added slices of cheese and fruits for a different twist but for me, I'm ok with plain and paperless version.
