savory corn and pepper muffins

Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake chose Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins for TWD this week.  I love months where we get a savory or breakfast recipe…one less dessert to squeeze in.  I made six muffins.  We had a couple for breakfast with scrambled eggs, and a couple with a Mexican-ish tortilla casserole I made for dinner.  They were the perfect accompaniment for both.

These muffins are wonderfully spiced from the chili powder, and have lots of good add ins, like corn kernels, jalapeños and red pepper.  While I know some people can’t stand the stuff, I am a cilantro fiend and always use a heavy hand with it.  If you’re a cornbread purist, you may not go for these.  I’m not, so I did…I thought they were best warm.

For the recipe, read Rebecca’s post or see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll.
