Tiny Corn Muffins

Tiny Corn Muffins from Weelicious

The second Halloween ended all I could think about was Thanksgiving and what I would be making. I always make a succulent, juicy Maple Brined Turkey, some tasty stuffing like these Apple Sausage Stuffing Bites and Sweet Potatoes in Orange Cups, but I tend to switch up the bread I serve. The kids always want me to make Tiny Corn Muffins as they're cute as can be and remind me of what my grandmother used to make. This rewind Wednesday I'm going back to a simple recipe that you can turn into Cranberry Cornbread Stuffing or serve on their own!

As a kid growing up in the south, cornbread in any form -- be it sticks, muffins, whatever -- was a staple. My grandmother used to take her old seasoned cast iron corn pone mold (a southern style cornbread) and grease it with fat drippings she kept in a jar above the stove. Then she would fill it with sweet corn batter which came out crisp, tender and delicious. I just can't imagine how many calories there were!

Sadly (or should I say "fortunately" -- sorry grandma!), we don't keep a jar of drippings in our kitchen, but the taste of these muffins run a very close second, are healthy and they only take minutes to prepare. I especially like this recipe because they have a crunchy top, a tender middle and they're perfectly sweet from the agave instead of a cup of sugar like my grandmother's recipe calls for.

I made 2 dozen of these Tiny Corn Muffins thinking I would have plenty for days. Nice try, they were gone within 48 hours. My husband would eat like five in one sitting. Oh well, better double the recipe next time.

    These are great! I made a few changes such as sneaking in some ground flax seed and using some whole wheat but my whole family loved these. I am loving your blog!
