j01779461.jpgI’ve just returned from a bruncheon attended by women from my church.  So much fun ! Anyway, I was in charge of bringing the muffins.  Really an exciting task for me, because I have the BEST muffin recipe thats been lurking around my family cookbooks for years.  Very simple, very delicious – and because of that – not the healthiest.  But don’t let that dissuade you.  Ever Everyone deserves a treat every once in a while.  In our family, these muffins show up at Thanksgiving (I know –  muffins at Thanksgiving?  you may ask.  I don’t get it either – family traditions are unexplainable).  Try it out, I promise they won’t disappoint:

  1. 1 Package Jiffy corn muffin mix
  2. 1 egg
  3. 1/3 cup of whole milk
  4. 1/2 cup of fresh sour cream
  5. 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese
  6. 1/2 cup of creamed corn

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl (batter will be lumpy).  Scoop mixture into muffin tins.  Cook for 15-20 minutes.  Let cool (will be considerably hot !) for 5 minutes.

Yields 6 muffins.

 Now I’d like to point out that I’ve been conservative in my estimates of those “good” ingredients (i.e., sour cream, cheddar).  Feel free to up the sour cream by another 1/3 cup if you’re daring ;o).  Makes muffins nice and moist !
