Cook the Book: Corniest Corn Muffins
Muffins compose one of my most favorite categories of baked goods. They're cake-like and sweet, but not so indulgent that I would feel guilty about stuffing my face with a chocolate muffin or carrot muffin first thing in the morning. It's like cake...for breakfast! (Admittedly, I wouldn't feel guilty about eating dessert cake for breakfast either, but this practice is probably frowned upon by most people who don't want a sucrose-fueled morning.)
I also love muffins because they're ridiculously easy to bake, resulting in a low effort-to-deliciousness ratio. The next muffin I bake will be Dorie Greenspan's Corniest Corn Muffins from Baking: From My Home to Yours. They're cornier than your average corn muffin due to the inclusion of corn niblets. Lots of niblets. Mm, niblets.
