Just Call Me Martha Stacey

Cookie Party: Mini Cornbread Appetizer

Posted on: December 5, 2010

The second appetizer I served at my recent cookie exchange party were Corn Bread Bites, found in a recent Martha Stewart recipe.  They were so easy, can be made ahead of time and produce three different flavour profiles with one recipe!

Flavour Combinations:
-1/4 tsp grated orange zest, 1/4 tsp chopped fresh rosemary, 1/4 tbsp pepper
-1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp grated cheddar cheese
-2 tbsp caramelized onion, 2 strips cooked bacon (broken into small pieces)

1 cup flour
1 cup coarse yellow cornbread
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp sugar (I found them sweeter than I was expecting so I’d probably cut out some of the sugar next time)
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup safflower oil
flavour combinations, see above

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Coat mini-muffin tin with cooking spray.

Whisk together flour, cornmeal, salt, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Combine buttermilk, egg and oil in separate bowl.  Stir into flour mixture until combined.  Divide into 3 1-cup batches and stir a flavour combination into each.

Fills cups of muffin tray three-quarters full with batter.  Bake until toothpick inserted into centres comes out clean (12 minutes).  Transfer to wire rack and let cool for  minutes.  Turn muffins out from tray and repeating with remaining batter.

Serve warm or at room temperature (makes 36).  Can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 days.
