A couple months back, Brigid sent me some great corn meal and I decided to learn how to bake.
My first couple of attempts were not all that spectacular, but one did confirm that the smoke detectors work as advertised.
Behold--the corn muffin.
I made my first pan of these tonight...after not one, not two, but THREE trips to the grocery store to collect all of the stuff I needed. And they could not have come out better.
Thanks, Brigid! Now come visit New Orleans and I'll bake a pan just for you. Heck with pralines and muffaletta...my corn muffins are now at the top of the Big Easy culinary scene.
