Rosemary-Corn Muffins

In muffins made with corn and cornmeal, the grain's sweetness is a perfect match for the aromatic intensity of rosemary.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup coarse yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary, plus leaves for topping
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh corn kernels (from 2 to 3 ears of corn)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly coat a standard 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, rosemary, and 1 cup corn.

  2. Combine buttermilk, egg, and oil in a small bowl. Add to flour mixture, and stir until just combined.

  3. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling three-quarters full. Top with remaining 2 tablespoons corn and the rosemary. Bake until tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into centers comes out clean, 15 to 17 minutes. Let cool in tin on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Turn out muffins onto rack. Serve warm or at room temperature. Muffins can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

    Canola oil being unhealthy is a myth. See http://www.snopes.com/medical/toxins/canola.asp.

    What could I use in place of the canola oil? I never use canola oil in my cooking as it is very unhealthy.

    I'm not a huge cornbread fan, but these muffins are fabulous. I found they're more flavorful with a little more salt than the recipe calls for.
