Toasted Maple Corn Muffins with Maple Honey Butter

Maple Corn Muffins

Mix up a couple of authentic American flavors like maple and corn, and what do you get? Crumbly, toasty golden muffins just right for a lazy breakfast or afternoon tea. Bake the muffins in paper and they’re great for on the go meals or road trips. Or, simply pour the rich corn batter into a 9×9-inch baking pan, and make yourself a sweet, satisfying bread – nice as a go-with for dinner soups, chilis and stews.

If you like, take your muffins to the next level by making the accompanying Maple Honey Butter. This recipe will produce more  than enough for your bread or muffins, but don’t worry, it’s also delicious on toast or pancakes – even popcorn!

For a real treat, slice a muffin in half lengthwise and brown it face down in a pan of melted butter until golden and toasty. Slather on some maple honey butter and devour it while it’s still toasty hot and crispy. Nuf said…

    This looks great. However, is it really 1 TABLESPOOn of baking powder that’s required or only 1 teaspoon?

      Thanks Beauty!

      Yes, it’s one tablespoon. Corn meal, if you use a hefty organic kind like I do, is kind of dense. Thus, a little extra baking powder gives a nice rise. Give it a try!

        Yay! Don’t forget the maple honey butter, and please let me know how you like the muffins!

        I made it but replaced the sour cream with yogurt (that’s all I had) and replaced the corn oil (if it isn’t organic it’s most likely GMO) with grape seed oil but could have easily used coconut oil (melted) as well. I also threw in a handful of dried cranberries. Voila,.. very nice. I topped them with my homemade peach jam, BTW.

        Nice! Cranberries and homemade peach jam sound like great additions. Thanks for telling me!

      Thanks, Elizabeth! They are especially delicious when toasted golden in a pool of browned butter. 😉
