Tuesdays with Dorie: Savory Corn & Pepper Muffins

This week's selection comes from Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake. She has a great blog with gorgeous pictures and excellent recipes. This was a non-dessert-y recipe which was a nice change of pace.
The original recipe calls for jalapeno, chili powder and red bell pepper. The 'Playing Around' part of the recipe omitted those things and increased the sugar for a richer less spicy version, which is what I did. I increased the corn a little but kept the recipe the same otherwise. It was an easy recipe to make and they would have been excellent with chili I think. However, since I married to the pickiest man on earth, I did not serve them with chili. Instead we ate them with buttermilk fried chicken. They were good, crumbly, very much like cornbread. And I think they could have used even more corn (at least I would have liked more corn in them). This was a welcome change from our regular sweet baking selection, thanks again Rebecca!

Your pictures are beautiful. I meant to try half plain, but I got too lazy.

Fried chicken! I'm so envious. I've been craving it, but Jeff's working late, so we've got to get the timing right. Delish.
