  • pinch salt

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sweet corn kernels
  • creme fraiche, as needed for serving
  • honey, as needed for serving
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, polenta, sugar, baking powder, and salt to combine.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the butter, honey, egg. and buttermilk together to combine.
  3. Combine the wet and the dry ingredients just to combine. Fold in the corn kernels.
  4. Scoop the batter into a lightly greased standard muffin molds. Fill 3/4 of the way full (these cakes won't peak - the surface stays flat, making them look more like individual cakes than a standard muffin or cupcake).
