I modified according to what another reviewer suggested and this recipe tasted fantastic: decrease sugar to 5 tbsp, decrease vanilla to 1/2 tsp, decrease bisquick to 1 1/4 cup and increase cornmeal to 1/2 cup. Just the right amount of corn taste. I will be making this again! Read More

Best sweet corn muffins ever! I made a few changes that made them AMAZING! First off, I took the baking mix down to 1 1/4 c. and increased the corn meal to 1/2 c. I also only used 5 tbsp. of sugar and 1/2 tsp of vanilla. Lightly sweet and the perfect amount of corn taste! Read More

Very good corn muffins - although I'm not sure if I'd go so far as to call them the "best ever". They were very easy to make and whip up in a pinch. I cut back on the sugar using 1/4 cup and then added a Tbsp. of honey and left out the vanilla entirely. Like others, I used 1 & 1/4 cups of biscuit baking mix and upped the cornmeal to 1/2 cup which worked out well. In order to ensure a moist muffin, I used 2/3 cup of buttermilk vs. milk. I baked these for 20 minutes and they were lightly golden brown on top. These are perfect for chili, soup, or as a side for pulled pork. Read More

I also used reduced-fat bisquick! =o) Read More

Very easy to follow and very good results. The recipe says it makes 12 muffins and I came out with just 6 med. size so perhaps 12 is a typo?? Read More

These were very good! I love corn bread/muffins and this is one of the best I have tried the only thing is is that they are very sweet so if that's not what you are looking for these aren't for you... Read More

This recipe does not cut it as a "corn" muffin. However it makes the best ever cupcakes by adjusting the sugar to 2/3 cup. I got 12 small cupcakes. Read More

These were great! Cake-like and sweet. I made 6 muffins out of the batter instead of 12 because we like to have a nice big top on them. I used low fat biscuit mix and they still tasted wonderful. Will definitely make them again and again. Read More
