  • 1 3/4 cups fine cornmeal

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder

  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 cup fresh or thawed frozen corn kernels

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped scallions


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease the cups of two 12-cup muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk the cornmeal with the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the milk and butter until smooth. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until combined, then fold in the corn kernels and scallions.

  3. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups. Bake for about 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let the muffins cool in the pan for 10 minutes before serving.

Make Ahead

The corn muffins can be stored in an airtight container overnight. Warm in a low oven before serving.
