These were very good. I wasn't sure I would like the scallions in them. I have another corn bread recipe that I like pretty well and it actually has corn in it. It's just the right blend of sweet and not sweet. I was pleasantly surprised with these!
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 tbs sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup plus 2 tbs buttermilk
2 tbs oil (substitute unsweetened applesauce if you want to cut down on fat)
1 large egg whisked
1/4 cup chopped scallions
Preheat oven to 450. Lightly grease 6 cups of a standard size muffin pan wiht vegetable oil.
combine dry ingredients and make a well. combine wet ingredients and scallions and pour into well. Stir until just blended. Fill muffin cups 2/3rds full and bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 10-13 minutes.
I actually got 6 muffins plus 6 mini muffins. When I had more batter, I knew the kids would like small heart shaped muffins. Excellent with cucumber-celery salad and buttermilk chicken. Sorry no picture of this one, everyone gobbled them up!
