Rosemary Corn Muffins - 52 Side Dishes

Pin It Now!

OH BOY do I love these little gems.  On their own, they are an authentic scratch corn muffin that is moist tender delicious and has the most fantastic aroma.   The added fresh herbs (can used dry if you need to) set this apart.  But also the extra Buttermilk used in the recipe gives these an extra moistness that you just will never get from that little inexpensive box corn muffin mix.

This is destined to become your GOTO Corn Muffin recipe.


My real favorite use for this is my very favorite use of leftovers ...

Take a corn muffin, slice in half and add leftover Ham (or Turkey) and a bit of Cranberry Sauce (Come back tomorrow for a recipe for this Craisin Cranberry Chutney).

Midnight on Christmas Day after all of the rush and bustle and one of the biggest meals of the year is finished...

This is the midnight snack I crave!

Happy Holidays, Cook well and ENJOY!

 OK... Here's what I did...

Rosemary Corn Muffins

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 2 Cups Corn meal
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 3 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • Large Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 2 TBS Finely Chopped Fresh (if available or Dried) Rosemary
  • 2 Cans (Divided) Sweet Corn (drained)
  • 2 Cups Buttermilk
  • 2 Large Eggs (Slightly Beaten)
  • 1/2 CUp Canola Oil
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat Oven to 375 Degrees
  2. Lightly coat a standard 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, rosemary and 1 cup corn.
  3. In a small bowl, combine buttermilk, egg and oil. Add to the flour mixture, then stir until just combined.
  4. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling three-quarters full. Top with remaining 2 tablespoons corn. Bake until tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into centers comes out clean, 15 to 17 minutes. Let cool in the muffin tin on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
  5. Serve warm with Butter OR Save for leftovers, add a little ham (or turkey) and some Cranberry Chutney and of course... ENJOY!
