TWD: Corniest Corn Muffins

I always seem to be running late these days: no time exercise, to time to garden, and worst of all no time to BAKE. (I also don't have time to clean the house, but in my mind that is a good thing.) So here I am 4 days late with my Tuesday with Dorie post. Sorry fellow TWDers.

This week's selection of Corniest Corn Muffins (page 4 of Dorie Greenspan's Baking From My Home to Yours) was made by Jill of My Next Life.

Over my life time I have baked a lot of Corn Bread and tried a lot of different recipes but I've always gone back to Martha White's Sweet Yellow Corn Bread (yes a box mix). Everyone in the family loves it and it is always the first thing to go at gatherings.

But I have to say Dorie's Corniest Corn Muffins recipe may have Martha's box mix beat. The CCM's texture was great, it was full of fluffy air pockets and crunchy corn. It was moist and slightly sweet, and almost perfect. Next time I'll add more corn, maybe a little more sugar, and bake it a little less. I baked for 17 minutes and mine came out a little too brown.

So thanks Jill for making a great selection. I have a new favorite Corn Bread recipe!

On a different subject take a look at the roses I found at Walmart of all places. You can't really tell in the picture, but they have a greenish-yellow color. Very unusual and beautiful. And only 8 bucks for a dozen. What a bargain.
