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.
