1 cup all-purpose flour (I used a gluten free all purpose that is a 1 for 1 substitution)
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
3 sweet potatoes or 1 (16 ounce) can sweet potatoes (I used a 15oz can of pumpkin)
- 2 eggs
- 6 tablespoons milk
- 3 tablespoons oil
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Mix all the wet ingredients together in a smaller bowl.
Combine and mix until all the dry ingredients have been incorporated.
RP Servings: For a regular muffin, probably 2 per person is realistic. For us, then, that’s 7 servings
RATING: 2 stars (hubby says a 1)
Like Ryan’s Ground Meat and Potatoes recently, I should have paid attention to the one 1* review. Poor FayeMay859, ignored until we need her…. OKAY, so. I didn’t use sweet potatoes. I am assured by all the other 5* reviews that these are flavorful with sweet potatoes (although some use pumpkin, so I remain skeptical). Otherwise, I made it exactly as the recipe says. They rose, which was good because the batter is quite heavy and I wasn’t sure. They’re nice to look at. I had one hot, which is when you’re supposed to eat corn bread. The outside cooked nicely with a bit of crust, but the inside is a bit dense. Not uncooked, just a bit dense. But mostly…. no flavor. NO. FLAVOR. I did wonder at the 1 tsp of salt, so increasing that would help. I like my cornbread sweet, and this has sugar, but there’s not much sweet flavor to this, so if you like yours sweet, increase the sugar or use a more-sugary substitute like agave. A lot of people who reviewed it put corn in, and a sweet canned corn (or fresh) would be good probably. Or you could definitely go the muffiny route and use pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon. For the love of Pete, just use SOMETHING to amp up the flavor. Because if it actually had FLAVOR, it would be at least 3 stars and maybe 4. I ate mine with an alarming amount of fresh farm butter…… and it was still just ok. My husband said he didn’t even want to waste butter on one. And honestly, we just threw them away…
