There are just certain foods for which a girl needs a perfect, never-fail recipe. I consider corn muffins to be one such food. I am a sucker for just about anything with corn...polenta, corn tortillas, tamales, corn on the cob, corn cakes, kettle corn, corn chowder. And, of course, corn muffins. But, everytime I make corn muffins, I find myself disappointed. Too dry. Not quite sweet enough. Too sweet. Complicated. Or too boring.
Now, lest I sound terribly picky and hard-to-please, let me assure you that my quest for a go-to corn muffin ends here. I have discovered a muffin that's as perfect alongside a bowl of chili as it is alongside a bowl of cereal. For breakfast or for dinner, this is the corn muffin, my friends. It's as simple as that. And sometimes simple...in the deliciously uncomplicated way...is just what a girl needs.
