  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup finely ground cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup fresh corn kernels (from about 1 1/2 ears)
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper or foil liners. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and 1 teaspoon of salt. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the buttermilk and melted butter. Whisk in the dry ingredients, then fold in the corn kernels.
  2. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean. Let the corn muffins cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning them out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the mascarpone with the honey and a pinch of salt. Serve with the muffins.

Make Ahead

The corn muffins can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
