Herbed Corn Muffins

Are you a muffin man or a cupcake lover.  Or both, like me?  I am always looking for a great savory muffin to accompany a salad.

Remember all the magazine I bought to read on the plane ride to Georgia?  Yup, I found these tasty herbed corn muffins from the Cooking Light April 2013 Issue.

So i say, move over cupcake, The Muffin Man is back in town.

I love Corn Muffins.  But these were are tender, moist and light with a lovely texture. The addition of the parsley, scallions and Parmesan made this an excellent addition to my Spring salad.

The only thing I didn’t add to my muffins from the original recipe is I excluded thyme.  Only because, I forgot to add it.  I can’t tell you how many times that has happened to me.

Do you ever forget to add an ingredient?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

  1. Marlene,
    I forget ingredients all the time! Especially sugar in muffins, because to me it’s a dry ingredient so I do my wet team, then space when I am doing the dry team because really sugar is part of the other team. The only way around it for me is to take the ingredient photo, then start using each item. That way I can look over and see what I forgot!
