Cheddar Corn Muffins

INGREDIENTS

    • 1 cup unbleached flour

    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1 large egg

    •  

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Butter the insides and the top of a regular muffin pan (1/3 cup) or use paper liners for muffin tins
  3. In large bowl thoroughly combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  4. In medium bowl, beat the egg.
  5. Beat in the milk and the melted butter.
  6. Combine with the dry ingredients until just evenly moistened.
  7. Do not overmix.
  8. Stir in 1 cup of cheese.  Save ¼ cup for the topping!
  9. Immediately spoon the batter into the muffin pan.
  10. Evenly sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the muffins.
