Corn Bread Muffins ~ Real Corn, No Cornmeal

  1. I used this recipe after browsing several cornbread without cornmeal recipes. I did do a couple small adjustments though. I emptied the whole can of corn into my Magic Bullet before adding it, blending it until it was creamy. Also, thought I would miss the texture, so I went to the pantry to find cream of wheat (which I saw in another recipe), and happened upon some quick grits. I emptied 2 single serve pouches into the mix, and it actually could have used double that, but all in all it was very good. Oh, and I added a pinch of granulated sugar on the top then baked it in mini loaf pans for 22 mins.

    1. I think that's something I should have done, too... blended the corn in my MB. I wasn't sure I liked the texture of the whole kernels in there.

  3. I just made these and they are EXCELLENT. I don't really know that I would change anything... I think they are sweet, but not too sweet... I did puree my corn in the food processor before adding it though - and I used frozen corn instead of canned and thawed it with boiling water before pureeing - Also I used rice milk because we're dairy free and it turned out great. I will admit I was out of baking powder so I had to use baking soda and cream of tartar but it was still excellent and I'll be making these again for sure.

    1. I am so glad you liked them! Yes... I will be pureeing my corn next time first as well.

      I do have a question about non dairy milks... Do you prefer Rice over Soy or Almond or do you drink all at times?

      Delete
    2. We don't do soy, because I think too much soy is not good for the body. Rice milk tends to have a bit of sugar but Almond milk is a trigger for my husbands migraines.... so generally we do almond for me (because I prefer the taste to rice milk)but my husband usually uses rice milk!

  5. Im from the Caribbean and we make a salted cod dish which traditionally goes with boiled ground provisions ( yams, potato), plantains and boiled or fried dumplings. I wanted to try something a little more creative that's not fried and thought of corn muffins but almost all had cornmeal, which I don't have in my pantry right now.
    I am about to try this recipe, the only thing is I don't have honey and I am praying that it's not absolutely necessary :) Will let you know how it came together and if my critical family/audience liked the twist to the tradition! Thanks in advance

  7. I'm currently living in China and made these because I didn't have cornmeal. The one thing I did different was that I blended the wet ingredients until they were smooth. The cornbread turned out great and my husband love it! Thanks for the recipe!

  8. What can I do if I don't have baking powder or soda?

  9. I loved these! I was needing a corn bread recipe without cornmeal and come across yours.
    I cut the recipe in half and just had one. Very good can't wait for dinnner.

  10. I had these at my daughter-in-law's house and thought they were absolutely amazing! I made them the first thing when I got home and everybody loved them. I thought the texture of the muffins with the whole kernels was just sublime! I did use the immersion blender to break the whole kernels down just a little bit - so not every one was whole, and they were just perfect.

    I think if people wanted to use creamed corn they'd need to cut the sweetener a bit, as creamed corn is a lot sweeter.

  11. Delicious recipe - very moist and surprisingly fluffy. I pureed the 15oz of corn in the recipe (I used frozen corn) and then threw in a few handfuls of solid kernels. I also found it helpful to lightly spray the paper liners if making "cornbread cupcakes". Will definitely use again as a base for other savory "cupcakes."
    Thank you!

  12. I used two ears of fresh sweet corn (boiled it for 10 minutes, then cut the kernels off) instead of canned, and it was delicious!

  13. Should i drain the corn from the can or use it all? I'm planning on pureeing the corn a bit. Just not sure if it will be moist enough if I rinse and drain the water from the can....
    Thanks!

    1. I drained the water out first. Hope that helps! :)

  15. Awesome recipe! Kids loved it too. Followed it exactly except I replaced the whole kernel corn with creamed corn. Made them moist and delicious!

  16. Just tried the recipe and it was super ! I did take the whole corn and put it through my mini chopper so that the texture was finer. I think I might cut back the sugar a bit next time as an experiment on sweetness but this was the best corn bread I ever made. My husband gobbled it up. Thanks for a real keeper !

  17. Wow, I am so glad that I was out of cornmeal today!! My husband declared these the best cornbread muffins he's ever had - even better than Famous Dave's. I would agree! I blended all the liquid ingredients together. Also, I sprinkled some sugar over the top before baking and didn't use muffin liners.

  18. These turned out awesome~! I also blended my corn (pureed it actually) before I used it in the batter. They turned out moist and fluffy~! They reminded me of a yellow cake mix only more sweet corn taste. This was a great recipe. Thank you~!

  20. I substituted creamed corn and cut the sugar. I also used a mini loaf pan and there were very very good
