Corn and Jalapeno Jam Muffins
from "Texas Home Cooking" by the Jamison's

1 1/4 Cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup stone ground cornmeal
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
3 tablespoons sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup corn kernels
3/4 cup jalapeno jam or jelly

Preheat over to 375. Grease the muffin pan.

Sift together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and cayenne in a bowl and set aside. In another, larger
bowl, beat together the buttermilk, butter, and sugar. Mix in the eggs, followed by the corn, blending well after each addition. Add the flour mixture and stir to combine lightly.

Spoon about half of the batter (it will be a bit stiff) into the muffin pans, filling each just about 1/3 full. Drop a dollop of jelly, about 1 tablespoon, on top of the batter in each cup. Top with the remaining batter, covering the jelly completely for each muffin.

Bake the muffins 22 - 24 minutes until they are deep golden.

yield: 12 muffins
