TWD: Corn Muffins

This week’s Tuesdays With Dorie recipe was Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins. The recipe called for chili powder, cilantro, and two kinds of peppers. I didn’t have any of those ingredients on hand, but I did have the rest of the ingredients and soup in my refrigerator. I opted for the “playing around” section of the recipe, which was a plain corn muffin – well, plain but very good corn muffin.

I only made half a batch since the recipe said they are best consumed the day of or the day after baking, and there are only two of us. Two that are allowed to eat muffins, that is. The third member of our household will enthusiastically devour any baked good that happens to fall her way. Today at the beach she invited herself to a picnic. As hilarious as it was seeing her scavenging for tidbits in the middle of a circle of picnickers, we resisted taking a picture. We are trying to be good dog owners, and it was more important to whisk her away from the tempting area as quickly as possible.

Oh, right; this is a food blog. I served the corn muffins with the aforementioned soup, which made an excellent lunch. This recipe rated a 6 for D and a 2 for E, giving it a very high EDR of 3. Thanks to Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake for giving us a reprieve from sweets and a very quick recipe this week. If you would like a great corn muffin recipe, with or without peppers, you can find the recipe on Rebecca’s site. Tuesdays With Dorie welcomed some new members this week, so be sure to check the TWD blogroll to see some new blogs and what other people thought of Savory Corn Muffins.
