  • 4 lg. eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup butter {I use salted}
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Place muffin liners in a muffin tin or spray a silicone muffin pan with cooking spray.

  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla.

  3. Melt the butter in the microwave and then add to the egg mixture, stirring well.

  4. Add the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir until fully combined, but do not over mix.
  5. Fill each muffin hole 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Repeat with remaining batter.
