Sweet Corn Muffins

Posted by ataraktos on 2009-05-27

This muffins aren't meant to be cornbread cooked in a muffin tin - they're sweet. They remind me of sugar cookies, actually. They have a nice, crunchy top and are great with a little vegan margarine.


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp  salt
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn or vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice plus soymilk to equal 3/4 cup
  • 2 tbsp soy sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp lemon extract


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line 12-cup muffin tin with paper cups.
  3. Combine flour through sugar in one bowl.
  4. Thoroughly combine remaining ingredients in second bowl.
  5. Mix wet and dry together.
  6. Fill cups 2/3rds full.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until muffins test done.


  • I found these a little crumbly, especially hot out of the oven.  Once they had cooled some, they weren't as crumbly. But they also couldn't melt Earth Balance as well! :-)
