Another great baking recipe from Hungry Girl’s 200 under 200 cookbook.  I haven’t actually cooked or baked anything for a while.  It was difficult to keep up with the blog while moving and settling into my new house in Pensacola. I’ve taken some photos but haven’t gotten around to updating until now.  Yesterday I made these amazing cornbread muffins.  Fortunately my roommate Desiree happened to already have about half the ingredients (corn meal, flour and other basics).  The batter was quick and easy to whip up. I think I may have taken them out of the oven too early.  I prefer to eat moist and soft muffins so I figured it would be better to undercook rather than overcook.  These babies came out nice and creamy on the inside though.  It was almost like eating a cornbread “pudding” muffin.  The recipe is definitely worth trying!!! They are delicious even being undercooked inside. Here’s the recipe:

Cheesy-good cornbread muffins

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup canned cream-style corn

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute

1/2 cup fat-free sour cream

1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

1/4 cup chopped scallions

2 tablespoons Splenda No Calorie Sweetner (granulated)

1.5 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt

Optional: 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 375.  In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, Splenda, baking powder, and salt until mixed well.  In a small bowl, mix together all of the other ingredients: corn, egg substitute, sour cream, cheese and scallions.  Add the hot sauce if you like. (I added some, but I didn’t measure it 🙂 hehe).  Add contents of the small bowl to the large one and stir until mixed thoroughly.  Line a 12-cup muffin pan with baking cups and/or spray with nonstick spray.  Evenly distribute muffin batter among the cups.  Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until muffins are firm and light golden brown.  Allow to cool for a few minutes, and then enjoy!
