An American oldie, hot corn muffins are a dish that’s hard to beat. All buttered up, corn muffins are perfect anytime and any season. But wait, because this golden treat just got even sweeter. Baked with chunks of fresh peaches and kernels of corn off the cob, you can slather it in honey and butter and call it a day. Or just eat them all day, because these muffins have got the tangy sweet taste of summer. Ellen, Recipe Hunter

THE RECIPE

Peach and Sweet Corn Muffins

Sweet peaches, these corn muffins are good!

Corn muffins are an old time confection that have been feeding people for centuries. Served on the sweet side, this oldie is a goody that keeps getting better. With batter made of rich cornmeal and whole kernels of fresh summer corn, this muffin has a fuller texture than an ordinary cornmeal muffin. For an additional summery experience, this muffin layers succulent fresh chopped peaches folded inside the batter so that it’s packed with sugary sweet tanginess in every mouthful. After it has cooled off just enough to bite into, drizzle warm honey over it or spread creamy butter inside. Whether you’re looking for a seasonal treat to share with friends, or wholesome pick-me-up that will satisfy a sweet tooth, these corn muffins can be enjoyed as a breakfast treat, snack, or killer side dish.

As a lifelong pescetarian, I learned from a very early age about how to innovate with food. My parents were so great in the kitchen and always got the kids in on helping to prep meals from the get-go -- meaning it didn't take me very long to become entirely smitten with cooking. Fast forward to adulthood, and I've continued self-teaching as my passion for food has grown. I adore anything seasonal and I love a challenging new recipe, but I always come back to those recipes my mom made when we were little.
