Simple Corn Muffins

Simple Corn Muffins

I love muffins, almost every single flavor. But my favorite is corn muffins. I think they remind me of my childhood in Brazil when my mom always made corn cake for me and my sisters. I remember when I was playing dolls with my sisters and we smelled that amazing cake.

So we knew that mom was baking corn cake and we would devour it warm with butter, oh so delicious. I have the recipe of my corn cake here on the blog, click for recipe https://fabirecipes.wordpress.com/2016/04/05/moist-and-soft-corn-cake/.

Back to the corn muffin post, these are the simplest muffins ever. A few ingredients that everybody has in their pantry, a few minutes to stir everything together then bake. In less than 30 minutes you can serve it warm with butter alongside a cup of fresh coffee. What can be easier than that?
