COMFORTING CLASSICS : Aleppo Cheddar Corn Muffins

This is an cornbread true to Southern roots: its salty, and even though it has sweet creamed corn, its not sweet, just incredibly moist. The aleppo pepper gives it a tiny bit of fire and the sharp cheddar adds some salt – all of which makes these perfect for the Juniper Beef Stew or any rich dish.

ALEPPO CHEDDAR CORN MUFFIN, makes 12 jumbo muffins

  • 2 cups corn flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar, grated
  • 400 degree oven

Preheat oven to 400º

Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Combine wet ingredients into dry. Do not over stir, just until ingredients are incorporated.

These freeze great!
