A simple take on a classic dinner accompaniment. A little tomato and spicy seasonings take this corn muffin up a notch! (This recipe has been adapted from the Basic Corn Muffin Recipe by Doug Matthews) —Tayler Diane Earl

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (I prefer to use sunflower or coconut oil)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 to 1 cups corn (fresh, frozen, or drained canned)
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/4 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/4 tablespoon cayenne powder
  • 1/4 tablespoon chipotle powder
  • 1/4 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons tamari sauce
  • to taste salt and pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease or line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together tomato paste, paprika, cayenne powder, chipotle powder, cumin, garlic powder, tamari, and salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl mix the flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar, and baking powder until just combined. Do not over-mix. Gently fold in the corn.
  4. Add the chipotle tomato mixture to the batter and gently stir to combine. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin.
  5. Bake at 400° F for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Are these measurements correct for the spices ?
Not sure if 1/4 tablespoon corresponds to roughly less than 1 teaspoon, or if you in fact meant to measure 1/4 teaspoon.
Would look forward to trying the recipe , but am ambivalent because I don't find the measurements as listed particularly standard.
Thanks for the clarification !
