This week, Rebecca of Ezra Poundcake chose Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins on page 6 of Baking: From My Home to Yours. Madam Chow had a brain fart and made Dorie’s Corniest Corn Muffins by accident. Of course, I didn’t realize this until I was actually posting this.
Hanging my head in embarrassment, I will proceed with my review of the wrong muffins. These were quick and easy to put together. If you like your cornbread sweet (I like it just about any way you want to serve it), this is the recipe for you: sweet, but not too sweet. Cut back on the sugar if you want a more savory muffin.
I left out the corn kernels, and went a bit too heavy on the nutmeg. The nutmeg flavor really comes through, so next time I’m going to go a little lighter on my pinch of nutmeg.
This was a great change of place from all the sweets of the past couple of months. Check out the TWD blogroll to see what others have done WITH THE CORRECT RECIPE. If you want the recipe for Corniest Corn Muffins, see Dorie Greenspan’s post over at Serious Eats.
