Light Corn Muffins

from ButterYum
makes 12 regular or 24 mini muffins

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1/2 cup apple sauce

  • 1 egg

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup cornmeal (not self-rising)

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F, baking rack in the middle of the oven.

  2. Spray muffin pan with baking spray or line with paper liners.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the water, apple sauce, egg, and melted butter; set aside.

  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining dry ingredients; then stir in the reserved wet ingredients until combined. Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full. Bake in a 350F oven: 13-18 minutes for regular muffins; 5-8 minutes for mini muffins (we like them kind of browned).

Note: To make Jamie's recipe, omit the apple sauce and water listed above, and add 1/2 cup pureed canned corn.
