Jalapeno Corn Muffins..

I had accidentally bought two packets of cornmeal and was wondering how to use them up..
After trying out the Supriya's cornmeal dosa , the next thing on my list was Jalapeno Corn muffins from Kanchana's.
These are such wonderful treats and I just drooled over the very smell of it when it was baking!
I skipped the broccoli as I did have have them handy at home, but the rest being the same.
Here is the recipe..


Yellow cornmeal- 2½ cups

Bread or all-purpose flour-1 cup

Sugar- 2 Tbsp

Salt-1 Tbsp

Baking powder- 4 tsp

Non-fat dry milk- ½ cup or 1.5 cups non fat milk

Eggs- 3 nos at room temperature

Warm water (105–115°F)- 1½ cups

Cooking oil- ½ Cup

Cream-style corn-16 oz

Jalapeno chili peppers finely chopped- 4-6 nos. or 6-8 if using canned peppers

Grated sharp cheddar cheese-2 Cups

1 large onion grated


1.Preheat oven to 425°F

2.Grease two 12 cup pans or two 9″ × 11″ or 9″ × 9″ baking pans.

3.In a large bowl, stir together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and dry milk.

4.In a smaller bowl, lightly beat the eggs, and stir in the warm water and oil. Pour the liquid mixture into the cornmeal mix and stir in the corn, chopped chili peppers, cheese, and grated onion.

5.Pour the batter into the muffin pans or baking pans if  using and spread evenly with a rubber scraper or wooden spoon.

6.Bake for about 30 minutes at 425°F, until  a wooden toothpick or metal skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.


The spongy super soft inside of the muffin was such a heavenly bite and taste is still lingering in my mouth!

I'm not a very great lover of sweet muffins, but these savory muffins are just the right bites!

Note: For a kids friendly version, just remove the seeds from the jalapenos to reduce its heat and thus making it enjoyable for kids too!
