  1. Meg, your blog is beautiful. Congratulations!! These cornbread muffins look yummy.

    I’ll be making sugarless cornbread in a heavy iron skillet later on today, then when it cools it will be crumbled and made into Southern cornbread dressing.

      Happy Thanksgiving, Martha! I’ve made cornbread stuffing before and you’re right, you don’t want a sweet one for that purpose. My love for it is definitely in the minority here “up North,” which is too bad. I made the ones in the picture just this morning, and they’re in a refrigerator box right now, ready for me to snack on the rest of the week ;D

  2. I just made your recipe this afternoon, Meg. Actually a slight variation – I had no cornmeal, but I had masa (corn flour for making tortillas), so I substituted equal volume. The result was a lighter, finer texture and less-sweet flavor, but tasty just the same. Thanks! Definitely a keeper, and I’ll have to pick up some real cornmeal to try it again properly 🙂

      Hi Mike–I’ve never used masa before, and bet it made more cake-like muffins. By the way, that batch of muffins in the picture lasted me all week (Steve is not a fan of anything with corn in it), stored in the fridge and zapped in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. They softened up beautifully, didn’t go stale at all, so I’m extra pleased with it 🙂

  3. hi Meg, what a gorgeous website-both to look at and to read! I love your tagline – getting rid of processed food and junk is a pet project for me this year, so I love the help you share. I made these muffins last night, and i swear I could have gotten my husband to do anything as a result! He even said they were better than his mother’s!! When I get over the headache (as a result of dropping to the floor in shock at that statement!!), I’m going to make another batch tonight! High five!

      Hey, Carrie, anything that gets husbands to bend to our will is a good thing, IMO! Glad it works. Some people prefer unsweetened cornbread, and I’ve left the sugar out altogether to good effect, too! Hope your head’s okay ;D
