Cheesey Corn Muffins #CookoutWeek #MuffinMonday

Delicious tender corn muffins with a surprise filling inside.  This muffin makes a great accompaniment to whatever you are serving up.  As a bonus, any that are leftover are great for breakfast in the morning.

Welcome to Day 1 of Cookout Week.  You can learn all about it and enter to win some great prizes over at my Welcome Post.  Today also happens to be Muffin Monday so I thought what better way to kick off the week than with a Cheesey Corn Muffin that is perfect to pair with whatever you might be Cooking Out.

I will be sharing Cookout food with you each day this week as will about 50 other food bloggers.  You will want to stop by each day to see what I'm cooking up, link to the other blogger's recipes and link back to the raffle so that you may be the big winner.  I would love for one of my readers to win a prize.

You will find links to the Cookout recipes as well as links to more marvelous Muffins following my easy peasy cheesey recipe....

Delicious tender corn muffins with a surprise filling inside. This muffin makes a great accompaniment to whatever you are serving up.


1/2 c. cornmeal
1/2 c. flour
1 T. sugar
pinch of salt
2 t. baking powder
1/3 c. milk
2 T.  olive oil
1 egg
2-3 oz. cheddar cheese, cut into 6 cubes


Combine the cornmeal,  flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a bowl.  Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.   Whisk together the milk, oil and egg.  Pour into the well of the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.

Divide the batter between 6 muffin cups that have been treated with baking spray or lined with paper cups.  Place a cube of cheese into the middle of each and bake in a preheated 450* oven for 15 minutes, until golden brown.  

Let cool for a few minutes but serve warm while the cheese is still gooey and melted.

    1. As I'm sitting here stuffing my face with cheese and crackers I'm thinking how difficult it must be to give up grains.
