Lately, Snacking On: Corn Muffins

Crab & Jalapeno Corn Muffins

This is the season where get togethers often involve large, spicy pots of chili. These corn muffins are an excellent match for a hearty chili. These are also interesting & flavorful enough to eat on their own right - add a smear of chive cream cheese & serve with a side of greens to complete the meal. Honestly, these were so good, I even ate them for breakfast the next day.

1 cup corn meal
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 can crab meat 
1/2 can jalapeno peppers
1/2 vegetable oil
2/3 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
yield: 12 muffins

1. preheat oven 400F

2. grease muffin tins with stick of butter

3. combine corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder & salt in bowl.

4. mix oil, egg & milk. fold in crab meat & jalapeno.

5. add mixture to dry ingredients. mix until batter is uniform in consistency. 

6. pour corn meal batter into greased muffin tins, filling until 2/3 full.

7. bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
