From my collection of recipes

Today in chat we were talking about home made soups and I mentioned I had the best recipe for corn bread...

Several years ago our Kenny Rogers Roasters restaurant went out of business. When they did there was a request for their recipe for corn muffins. they are awesome... rich yet sweet. Our local paper found the recipe and printed it. So here is it is.

Kenny Rogers Corn Muffins - (I make them as corn bread)

1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup yellow corn meal
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup frozen corn

1. Preheat oven to 400*
2. Cream together butter, sugar, honey, eggs and salt in a large bowl.
3. Add flour, cornmeal and baking powder and blend thoroughly. Add milk while mixing.
4. Add corn to mixture and combine by hand until corn is worked in.
5. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan and fill each cup with batter. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until top of muffins start to turn brown on top.
Makes 12 muffins.

Note: We usually will grease a cast iron skillet and put some oil in it and get it hot in the oven while that is preheating. then when we are ready to bake the corn muffin mix, we will put it in the greases skillet instead of making muffins. Getting the skillet hot makes a nice crunchy side, and you still get the soft yummy center.

this recipe used to be on Top Secret Recipes but it looks like it is no longer there. The recipe I have was originally posted in the Post Register several years ago.
