Cornbread Muffins

Cornbread Muffins

1 cup yellow cornmeal

1 cup white flour, sifted

1/3 cup white sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1 ½ cups milk

¼ cup butter, melted

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Oil muffin tins.

Sift dry ingredients together into a bowl and make a well in the center. Mix together the egg, milk and butter and pour into the well. Using a whisk, combine swiftly with a few strokes. Do not overbeat. Spoon batter into muffin tins. Bake 20 to 25 minutes.

Serve warm.

These are excellent with chilli. I made mine in a pan with a prong in the center, hence the hole in the middle. Any muffin pan works well.
