Cornbread Mini Muffins

Leave a comment

Last week we had a potluck at work. I said that I would make mini muffin. But then I decided that I wanted to make vegetarian chili instead. So I made that and cornbread mini muffins instead.

 

I googled cornbread mini muffins and used the first recipe I found. I would have just used the recipe I usually use for a full-sized cornbread, but I was concerned about the amount of time it would take to cook. The recipe I used was from someone else’s blog: Dreamy Dish. It wasn’t bad, but not as good as I was hoping.

Adding Wet to Dry

I think my problem was that I used my stand mixer for the mixing. I’m pretty sure with cornbread, you’re supposed to stir it just until it is combined, and no longer. I probably overmixed┬áit. I’m used to a little crunchyness with cornbread, and this was missing that. I also might have undercooked it a little. Overall, not the worst thing I’ve even, but not my favourite cornbread. But I got no complaints.

Mexican Cornbread

When I was looking at recipes for my Cinco de Mayo fiesta, I came across this recipe for cornbread:

I’ve fallen in love with cornbread over the past few months, and I’m always looking to make things even better. So I thought I would try this recipe on Thursday!

Ingredients

It’s a spicier version of traditional cornbread and it has jalepenos in it. Yum!

Sliced Jalepenos

Chopped Jalepenos

I couldn’t find the can of green chiles at the grocery store I went to. Only cans of jalepenos. And since I was using fresh jalepenos, I didn’t want to put any others in. So I just used my two fresh jalepenos and ignored the chiles.

I quite enjoyed it. It really was a lot of work and quite time consuming though. I started making it at about 6, and it wasn’t done until about 7:45! Based on that alone, I don’t know if I would make this again.

Yum!

Happy cooking!
