Spicy Cornbread Mini-Muffins

Recipe by  

"These are perfect for making 3 dozen mini muffins to take to a potluck. Basting the muffin tin with melted butter and dusting with cornmeal are an essential step to getting a marvelous crispy exterior to the muffins. To add more kick, do not seed the jalapenos and add an extra one."

Original recipe makes 3 dozen mini muffins Change Servings

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Whisk flour, 1 cup cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, and garlic powder together in a bowl. Mix Cheddar cheese into dry ingredients until coated.
  3. Beat milk, eggs, vegetable oil, jalapeno peppers, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl until well mixed. Make a well in the Cheddar cheese mixture and pour egg mixture into the well; stir just until combined. Batter should be slightly lumpy.
  4. Brush 18 mini muffin cups with melted butter; spoon about 1 teaspoon cornmeal into each mini muffin cup, tilt pan to coat muffin cups with cornmeal, and tap out the excess. Spoon batter into each muffin cup to about 2/3 full.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 11 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes in the pans before removing to finish cooling.

I used buttermilk instead of regular milk and melted butter instead of vegetable oil. I had a 4 oz. can of mild diced chilies, I used half of that can in place of the canned whole jalapeno peppers. I could not find my mini muffin tins, I made 12 full sized muffins instead. Baked at 350*, they were done in just under 20 minutes. Very good cornbread recipe--very moist, lightly sweet, nice texture. We all really liked them.
