You might remember me saying that I have a person come in from the Fayette County Food and Fitness Initiative. She focuses on teaching the kids the Farm to Table Concept. Each month she has a different food that she focuses on. Last month it was corn.
As part of the program a “Teacher’s Basket” comes to me with a listing of activities I can do with the kids and some food products related to the topic. Last month I got cornmeal. That prompted me to try yet again to find a decent cornmeal muffin recipe.
I’ve tried and tried and tried. I love the cornmeal muffins from Famous Daves. I really love them. They aren’t dry at all. So many cornmeal muffins are dry and hard to choke down without a big drink of water. I’ve tried the “Famous Dave knock off” recipes and they taste too much like cake.
So in an effort to find the perfect recipe, I went to Google and unlike mine and Google’s last attempts, this attempt was a complete success. Even Kramer said I can make them again and again. That impressed me…he’s not been a fan of cornmeal muffins in the past so if I can get him to like them, I’m in business!!

The best part of all of this was the surprise that they were good. Truly I have tried so many times I had given up. I really only tried the recipe because I was given the cornmeal and didn’t want to waste it. I really didn’t have any hope that I’d love the muffins…I had already tried making them so many times before. Here’s how they look….
Best news…the childcare kiddos really liked them too.
I think in the future I’m going to play with the recipe a bit. There is a lot of sugar in them so I’d like to cut that back 1/4 cup and I think I’d like to add just a 1/2 teaspoon or so a baking soda to see if I can get them to puff up a
Regardless, I have a recipe that is tasty….
Even if my tweaks fail, my search for the Best Cornmeal Muffins is OVER!!
