Maple Bacon Corn Muffins
I love muffins! Any flavor, any size, anytime. Corn Muffins for me were always a hit and miss. Sometimes they’d be perfect and sometimes they were too dry and crumbly. Now through some recipe testing, I finally achieved the perfect one: Maple Bacon Corn Muffins. They are flavorful, moist and addicting. Perfect for breakfast or brunch.
The batter is filled with bacon pieces and sweetened with pure maple syrup (not the fake kind) and the combination of sweet, salty and smokey is both delicious and surprising. I used PAN Cornmeal instead of regular cornmeal and the result is a finer crumb that will not dry out and won’t give out a wonky texture.
Here in Miami, people are not really into brunch like New Yorkers are, where brunching is a culture. I really love slowing down on Sundays and just relaxing with friends and family while eating delicious breakfast food at noon. It’s a great plan and a good excuse for pigging out. Since Miami is not on board with this idea, I cook my brunch at home. Omelette, Maple Bacon Corn Muffins, a mimosa and I’m good to go 🙂
A couple of weeks ago, I made a delicious Polenta and used PAN Cornmeal too. By baking these muffins, you can see how versatile this product is! You can bake, use it as a breading (fish, chicken, pickles, tomatoes), empanadas, arepas, etc. It’s a product I grew up with in South America and I am so excited that is now available in the USA.
