Author Notes: 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

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 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. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease or line a muffin tin with paper liners.

  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.
