Happy corn muffins


Ok first off, I'm sorry for not posting more often. Its been hectic lately (crazy teachers giving me a butt load of homework/tests). And to make things more beautiful, along with my broken computer, by beloved camera died on me. **Sigh** So its a little difficult getting everything put together. But anyways.. :D
These corn muffins made me happy : ) So my mom got this new silicon muffin umm "pan" thing. It looks really cool, but feels even cooler. Its soft and rubbery and red. So I was all excited about it, and wanted to make something for the morning. Whats better than muffins? Nothing, that's what. So corn muffins it was, but not just any old corn muffins, happy corn muffins : ).









They had a nice brown crisp top, and a moist yummy middle. Excellent.

Pretty inconsiderate of teachers to ask you to actually do homework when it cuts into your baking time. Sheesh. Do I have to come down there and have a talk with them...I mean...really!!!

So what will you be doing during the summer?

I have some of those silicone bakeware myself (in blue) but I find that my muffins come out looking rather tiny instead of regular size (I wonder if I should fill them up more).

Sorry to hear about your camera.

There's something about corn muffins I just love. When they're perfect they're not too sweet, but just sweet enough to bring out the corniness and have a wonderfully moist texture. These look delicious!
