Sweet Corn Muffins

If there’s one food Indiana is known for, it’s corn. Though I’m not a native, I’ve learned to appreciate it just as well as any Hoosier (the official title for someone from Indiana, for those of you outside Midwestern America!).

These muffins are a great way to use the corn that’s available at the markets in Indiana these days. When baked, the sweet corn kernels add a burst of sweetness to each bite – and some cheddar cheese adds just a hint of savory flavor.

We made them for the following summer meal with friends — and they were so tasty, we know they’ll make several appearances as we move into early fall as well!

Blueberry and Sweet Corn Sundae 

Try these as a great item for a meal with friends or family the upcoming Labor Day holiday!  These Blueberry Tartlettes  are also another one of our favorite new items to bring to a gathering.

Hope you have a great Labor Day! We’ll be enjoying avoiding labor by spending time with family and friends :)

    It’s 10:25 pm and I’m seeing this post. I have a giant vat of three bean chili in the fridge.. is it too late to make some of these to accompany the chili for the rest of the week?! Looks great!

    This past week I was craving cornbread, so I pulled out my trusty pumpkin cornbread muffin recipe. After pulling them out of the oven, I couldn’t help but think, “This is a fall recipe and it is clearly still summertime outside.” You have solved by dilema. Looking forward to trying out this recipe!

    Interesting. I don’t think anywhere in the south is known for corn, but I think of corn muffins as very southern comfort food. My granny used to always make them for us and she was as southern as they come (smile). Definitely trying this recipe
