Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.

  • Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

  • Mix Cheddar cheese, spinach, artichoke hearts, milk, and egg together in a separate bowl. Stir into the flour mixture just until moistened. Pour into the prepared muffin tin.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool briefly on a wire rack.

Cook's Notes:

If you want crispy muffins, use a cast iron skillet. Preheat it with a little olive oil on the sides and bottom, then pour your batter in, bake, and enjoy!

Frozen spinach works just fine.

You can use a boxed cornbread mix (such as JIFFY(R)) if you are pressed for time. Follow the instructions on the box and add the spinach, artichokes, and Cheddar cheese.

I wanted crispy cornbread and did the cast iron skillet method that the recipe submitter noted. There must be a typo in this recipe. 1/3 cup milk wasn't nearly enough liquid. I kept adding until I got a batter consistency and didn't measure so I can not tell you how much I ended up using. I at least added a cup if not more. I recommend starting with 1 1/3 cups and then go from there. If you are looking for a light and fluffy cornbread then this isn't the one for you. This is a very dense one. I served this on New Year's Day with Hoppin Johns so I liked the idea of adding spinach and artichokes but it was just ok and not one I'd make again. Read More
