The process of making these muffins pretty accurately predicted the outcome. First, of course, start with a recipe that looks balanced and where the ingredients are fresh, simple and enticing - check. Mix up a batter that's pretty - rich and yellow, flecked with the green pepper and bright orange carrots - check. Inhale the mouthwatering aroma as they're baking - check. Watch through the oven window to see how beautifully they're rising - check. Brush some melted butter on these babies to give them a little shine, cut one in half and slather on a little butter. Oh, what goodness. I resisted any temptation to play with this with add-ins (so many possibilities) and it turned out I was pleased with the simplicity. I REALLY like the flavor punch of the green pepper and because I used a coarse ground corn meal, they had a lot of texture. What a winner! Oh..I forgot to mention that I substituted buttermilk (I LOVE baking with it!) for the sweet milk...to do that, for every cup of sweet milk reduce the baking powder by 2 tsp. and add 1/2 tsp. baking soda. So, I used 1 tsp. of baking powder and 1/2 tsp. baking soda.
