Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for coating tin
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 ¼ cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted, plus more for coating tin
  • 1 cup corn kernels, from about 2 cobs
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped basil

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees and lightly butter and flour a 12-cavity muffin tin.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and red pepper flakes.
  • In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, and melted butter.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Fold in the corn and basil, making sure they’re spread throughout the batter.
  • Scoop about ⅓ cup of batter into each cavity of prepared muffin tin, filling each about ¾ of the way.
  • Bake muffins for about 25-30 minutes, until tops are turning lightly golden. Let muffins cool in pan for a few minutes and enjoy warm or finish cooling on wire racks.
