I grew up eating at Kenny Roger's and their corn muffin remains one of my favourite items whenever I eat at the restaurant. I don't eat there as often now because its simply easier to eat at home when I have three young kids. When looking around for corn recipes to take part in this month's Little Thumbs Up, I suddenly remembered those famous corn muffins and found a recipe that claimed to be the original. That's a big claim - I had to make these and see if its true.
These muffins are so good and really close to the original taste I recall. A little sweet, a little salty, and has the distinctive taste of milk and honey. It is firm yet fluffy and has moist crumbs.
Kenny Roger's Corn Muffins (Makes 12)Recipe from here.
- 1/2 cup (113 g) butter
- 2/3 cup sugar (reduced to about 1/3 cup)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3/4 cup frozen yellow corn
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Cream together butter, sugar, honey, eggs and salt in a large bowl.
- Add flour, cornmeal and baking powder and blend thoroughly. Add milk while mixing.
- Add corn to mixture and combine until corn is worked in.
- Grease a 12-cup muffin pan and fill each cup with batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until muffins begin to turn brown on top.

I've never eaten at a Kenny Rogers.... but, I believe these corn muffins would be very delicious! Yum. I love all cornbread.ReplyDelete
I love corn products. When I am in Italy I always have them, whether is breadsticks or biscuits I find them much more flavourful than when using ordinary flour.ReplyDelete
These muffins are delicious Mich! Lovely recipe!
My goodness those muffins sound delicious, Mich! I'm a big fan of corn muffins and I love the addition of honey in baking so I'm sure I'd love these. Thanks so much for sharing!ReplyDelete
Ohhh your corn muffins look delicious! Great idea to serve with the main dish. I usually just serve as a snack. I want to give this recipe a try next time!ReplyDelete
Hi Mich, your muffin look really good, very well baked. Love your set meal, much batter than KR. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.ReplyDelete
I used to eat Kenny Roger's corn muffins at my schooling days too. I have tried baking an online recipe before and seems pretty good. Love to try the Pastry Queen's version and yours too.
This looks seriously so delicious!!ReplyDelete
Thank you very much for entering these into Tea Time Treats! A lovely savoury muffin indeedReplyDelete
I tried the receipe but it sank :( i'm new in baking btw.
Can I get some advice? When you say 'cream together', how creamy should it be? And what could be the reason for the muffin to sink? It was rising when baked.
Hi Eileen, the mixture should be pale and fluffy. Usually that could take about 4 to 5 minutes depending on your mixer. There are many reasons for muffins sinking - oven temperature, over mixing, under mixing etc... But essentially I think its important to cream it well.Delete
Under-baking is another reason for baked goods to fall. For this particular recipe, the top will start to crack open when they're done.Delete
I halved the recipe and hand beat the wet mixture, and it still turned out beautifully! Thank you so much for sharing!ReplyDelete
I tried this recipe, it turned out great! Memories of Kenny Rogers.ReplyDelete
I just made these tonight, and my husband and son totally loved them! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. :)ReplyDelete
What’s cornmeal? Can I replace with corn flour? 😅ReplyDelete
Short answer: no. Cornmeal is a much coarser product than cornflour, little granules instead of powder.Delete
