Tuesdays With Dorie – Corniest Corn Muffins

by Jessica on March 8, 2011


Momma G makes the greatest cornbread in the world. Forget roadside diners and grandma’s home cooking, my mom’s muffins are the best anywhere you look. Along with corn kernels, she always adds in grated cheese and green chiles, so I knew that I’d be altering Dorie’s recipe just a bit to make them as similar as I could to Mom’s. I also subbed whole-wheat flour for the all-purpose to make the muffins a little lighter and they were fantastic… totally worth the 5 WW points. 🙂


Jill of My Next Life is this week’s sweet hostess – hop over to her blog for the recipe, then check out the other corn muffins hitting the web today via the Tuesdays With Dorie site! By the way, this post is my 400th! Sounds like it’s time for another giveaway… don’t you think??

Wowsers those look wonderful, and I love the idea of those add-ins. I wanted to make them exactly the first time just to see if Dorie knew what she was talking about (like there was any chance she did not NO, she’s always dead on right) and believe me, they were perfect the way she wrote them. I will try some add-ins, too, because I think Dorie would want me to, don’t you? 😉

I’m making a note in my cookbook for next time to omit the corn and use cheeses and green chilies. That sounds so good I mihgt make them again this week. Great tip!
