Before you get started putting together these homemade muffins, here are a few resources and suggestions.
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE NEEDED TO MAKE THESE SAVORY CORN MUFFINS?
Cornmeal, All-purpose unbleached flour, Baking soda, Salt, White sugar, Honey, Eggs, Buttermilk, and Butter.
What happens if you use regular milk instead of buttermilk?
Since regular milk doesn’t have the acidity that buttermilk does, it doesn’t work well as a substitute. However, to make your own buttermilk, pour one cup of milk into a liquid measuring cup then add in one tablespoon of white vinegar. Stir the mixture together and let it sit for approximately 5 minutes.
Do cornbread muffins freeze well?
Of course the best way to eat muffins are right out of the oven, however, you can seal them in a resealable plastic bag for approximately three months. To use them out of the freezer, let them thaw to room temperature. This will take 3 to 4 hours.
To reheat them in the oven, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is heating, wrap each muffin individually in foil. Place them into the heated oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until they are warm.
