Cornbread Muffins Made with Real Corn Kernels

Usually cornbread muffins are baked from ingredients using cornmeal, but for those times when you don’t have any in the pantry, or for those of us who prefer using fresh ingredients for a more moist cornbread muffins, try this recipe that uses fresh corn.

This cornbread muffin recipe is pretty easy to make, yet the results are delicious and moist.

You can also make these with whole wheat flour, but we found that all purpose flour is a good substitute as well.


  • 3 cups of fresh corn kernels, canned or thawed frozen corn.
  • 2 cups of whole wheat flour or all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup of raw or white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • small pinch of salt - more if you like salty cornbread
  • 4 organic eggs, mixed ready to add
  • 2 cups of goat or cow milk - can use soy or rice milk
  • ½ cup of your preferred nut or vegetable oil

Makes: 24 cornbread muffins

Step by Step How to Make Cornbread Muffins:

First of all preheat the oven to 400 Fahrenheit.

Then by hand or using a food processor, chop up the corn kernels roughly into chunks until they look something like in the picture.

If you chop the corn kernels with a machine, don’t create a corn puree, unless you actually want to hide the chunky moist texture of the corn in the finished muffins, that is

The moist chunks of corn kernels help to keep the muffins interesting in texture and flavor, so I would just chop them roughly.

Set the corn at the side ready to add.

Next you mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl, adding the the flour, the sugar, the baking powder and the salt.

Then its time to add the liquids, first add the beaten eggs, then the milk and your choice of nut or vegetable oil.

Stir this liquid together until well combined.

Now it's time to gently stir and fold in the chopped corn kernels, until the mix is evenly distributed throughout the batter.

You need to line your muffin tins with 24 paper cases or coat with oil to release the cornbread when baked.

Then pour the batter evenly between the 24 muffin tins.

Bake at 400 F for 20-25 minutes or until golden and raised up.

You can test for when they’re done by gently pressing your finger on the top of the muffin, and when you release your finger the muffin springs back into shape.

Another way to test if they are cooked is to stick a bamboo skewer into the center of the muffin, and if it comes out clean, with to gooey batter sticking to it, then its done.

Serve these muffins while they are still warm.

Add a little butter if you like extra moisture and flavor.

And that is all there is to Learning How to Make Cornbread Muffins From Scratch!

You can experiment with extra flavors by adding some cooked and mashed pumpkin or cranberries to the batter.

You can also make different sauces and jellies to serve with your cornbread.
