Rosemary Corn Muffins


 

Since I have been growing rosemary, I am always looking for new ways to incorporate it into recipes.  Adding rosemary to corn muffin batter, proved to be a winner. We ate the muffins with bowls of pumpkin chili, for a perfect autumn dinner.


The garden in October
Potted rosemary, jauntily growing near marigolds, mint, and lantana
How did I do channeling my inner Martha?

Rosemary Corn Muffins

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup coarse yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar and enough skim milk to make one cup (let sit for five minutes)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup light olive oil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.

Mix together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and rosemary.
Combine milk mixture, egg, and oil in a small bowl. Add to flour mixture, and stir until just combined.
Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling three-quarters full. You should fill 10-12.
Bake until tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into centers comes out clean, 15 to 17 minutes.

Let cool in tin on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Turn out muffins onto rack.

  1. Rosemary must give it just the right earthy flavor. Sounds really good!

  2. Those sound delicious. I never think to add herbs to baked goods, until after I'm done baking them. I think these will have to go into our "have to try" slot for next!

  3. Rosemary is amazing! I love to make chicken pot pie using rosemary! Also, making chicken with rosemary and a balsamic reduction works great as well!

  62. Hi Lisa, This sounds like a great way to incorporate Rosemary. I just brought my plant in for the season and potted it for my corner kitchen window. I made a beef dish on Saturday and used a bit of it. I will certainly be trying this. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
