Homemade Corn Muffins

Buttermilk Corn Muffins

This recipe isn’t as exciting as my last post (bacon cinnamon rolls anyone?), but it crosses off one of the items on my “recipe bucket list.” I’d never made homemade corn muffins before. From a box, yes. I have to admit I’m very happy with my boxed brand which bakes up in a jiffy and I wasn’t certain I’d be able to get a nice, soft, sweet muffin. Happily, this recipe proved me wrong.

Buttermilk Corn Muffins

I cooked half the muffins in cupcake liners and half in greased tins. I liked the ones without liners better because of the crispy edges.

Do you have a recipe bucket list? I’d love to hear what’s on your list of things to try. Some other items on my list are French Macarons and Caramel Cake. Leave a comment below!

    Made these and they are great. I have tried so many corn muffin recipe that disappointed , NOT this one. Moist tender and delicious. Thanks for the keeper recipe. I just ate one and only thing for me is a little too sweet but that is very fixable to my taste.

    I halved the recipe and got 7 regular muffins out of it.
