This is our version of a pimped-up corn muffin. Corn, Cheddar and Sun Dried Tomato Muffins are the nibble you’ve been waiting for. We have them at brunch as a savoury alternative to all of the sweets. I use a mature cheddar for that extra kick. However for a quick taster, just spread pesto for instance. The ingredients combine to create a superb flavour burst in your mouth. This is a superb vegetarian dish.

Ingredients
 

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F. Butter a 12-cup muffin tin.
  • Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl; mix well. Add the cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and scallions and toss well.
  • Whisk together the warm milk, melted butter, oil, and egg in a separate bowl.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix together just until a soft dough forms. (Be careful not to overmix the dough.)
  • Fill the prepared muffin cups to the rim with batter. Bake until the tops start to brown slightly, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Cool for 2 to 3 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  • Remove to a rack and let cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 2 days.

Notes

This is our version of a gussied-up corn muffin. We serve them at brunch as a savoury alternative to all of the sweets. They are also great spread with pesto or served alongside either the Chiapas Tortilla Soup or Cuban Black Bean Soup.
