Now that summer is coming to a close ( *sob* ), I am trying to purchase/cook/eat as much summer produce as possible. Which means that I am gorging myself on peaches, berries, tomatoes, and fresh sweet corn. While I love my fruits and veggies, I usually get stuck in a rut – marinated tomato salad, berries on cereal, and corn on the cob. So that means I am constantly looking for new ways to showcase my favorite summer eats.
Like taking my sister’s favorite corn muffin and adding fresh sweet corn kernels. And was that an awesome decision! The fresh sweet corn added an additional sweetness to the muffins (yay!) and also a good textural component. Plus, corn is a good source of vitamin C (which gives the muffins a bit of a nutritional kick!).
These muffins are also super easy to whip up, which means that you can make them right now! (seriously…)
