King Size Corn Muffins

My love affair with my king size muffin pan continues! I made these cornmeal muffins the other day and they were perfect! The recipe comes from Little Cakes from the Whimsical Bakehouse, where I've gotten some seriously wonderful muffin recipes, like these blueberry muffins and my all-time favourite, Coffee Chocolate Chip muffins. This cornmeal muffin recipe is extremely simple to put together and provided a quick fix for my muffin craving.

Corn Muffins (adapted by me)

Blend together:
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk

Sift in:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Add: 1 1/2 cups cornmeal

Once all ingredients are combined, scoop & bake @ 350F until a tester inserted in the centre comes out clean - 20 - 25 minutes for regular sized muffins (you'll get 12 of these) or 30 - 35 minutes for king size muffins (of which you'll get 6).

I was very lucky and found a giant muffin pan at a garage sale one time. It's great for the giant chocolate muffins with all the bits of gooey chocolate chips in them.

Wow those look great! I make corn muffins in my miniature pan and stuff them with a goat cheese/cream cheese blend...I bet that would go great with these!

Rosa & Donna: the pan is the 6 cup muffin pan from Wilton (more info here). I got mine from the local kitchen store.

Pierce: That is amazing that you found one at a garage sale! Excellent!

Cathy: yum! That addition sounds amazing! I'll have to try it sometime.

Mmm, I love these muffins. They look so HUGE and delicious. Man, sometimes there's nothing better than a corn muffin, warm from the oven, with a bit of butter. Can't wait to try these!
