TWD: Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins

These are a fun fiesta in a muffin!  The whip up in a snap and would be at home on a breakfast table or next to a bowl of chili or tomato soup. These give you just the smack to your senses we need this time of year when everything is cold and dark and you want to stay in your cozy bed a little longer. 


These muffins have the zing to get you going and the staying power to keep you going all morning long. They are hearty and moist and have a lovely crumbly texture from their hefty cornmeal content.  I love how they are chock full of surprise bits of pepper and corn, and have a lovely backround of chili from jalapeno and chili powder.

This week's recipe was chosen by Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake. Check our her site (or Dorie's book, Baking, From My Home to Yours,) for the recipe.  Check out what the other TWD bakers have done here.
