FINALLY! We had so much food at the beach that there was no need for corn bread. Now that i am back at home, it seems like the prefect timing. While i was away, Joe made a huge pot of chili. Tonight’s meal isn’t very summery, but simple and good. I think this may be the simplest bread recipe yet.
No offense to the book or anyone in the challenge, but after looking at the pictures online, i really didn’t want to put bacon on the bread. It just didn’t appeal to me. I am glad that i didn’t because the sweet corn muffins go so well with our chili. As you can see in my FLICKR photos, there are a LOT of corn kernels in this recipe. If i were to make this recipe again, i would use 1 1/2- not 2 1/2 cups of corn. Also, 30 minutes at 350 was just perfect for the muffins, but i think would not be nearly enough for a pan of bread. Once they were done, they stuck to their wrappers pretty badly. I suspect that this is because i used low-fat buttermilk, and maybe a scoch less butter than the recipe called for. Next time, i would forgo the wrappers and spray the tin.
See (part of) the recipe in googlebooks. Page 151.
