Cornbread and corn muffins are popular in New England. This muffin recipe has a different twist with green onions and sour cream, and the aroma while they’re baking is wonderful! I like to serve these with soups and stews.—Naomi Rogers, Essex, Connecticut


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, combine the egg, sour cream, milk, butter and onions; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
