After finding The Baking Beauties , I entered a whole new world of gluten-free baking. As I've said before, Jeanine just seems to have a gift for developing recipes that are gluten free but don't taste like it. One day I wanted to make cornbread but just didn't want to take the time, so I took a moment to do a search and see if Jeanine had a corn muffin recipe. She did, and this is it: Buttermilk Corn Muffins
I tried the recipe and found that these muffins are simply delicious; I have served them to company who never knew they were gluten free. I do change a couple of things which makes them a wee bit healthier and does not affect the taste. Instead of 1/2 cup butter, I use 1/3 cup canola oil. And I use only 1/3 cup sugar rather than 2/3. I keep these in a plastic bag or container in the freezer. When I need a quick muffin to accompany soup, I just heat one in the microwave for 25 seconds and it tastes fresh baked!
And I should add that I have also poured this batter into a pan and made it into cornbread when I am in a hurry. It has to bake for longer than the muffins, but is quicker to make with no muffin tins to fill.
