Mickey in the Kitchen

A good friend called me on my cell phone last week asking if I liked cast iron cooking. I really do, however, it is hard since I have a glass top stove. She asked if I ever baked with cast iron, of course. So she brought me this little gift that she found for a few dollars at the local Salvation Army store. What a find, eh!

It was brand new, still had the tag hanging on it and hadn't been seasoned yet. I spent yesturday seasoning it and cooling it. For lunch today, I made corn muffins in them. They turned out so cute. Don't you agree! Here is my CORN MUFFIN recipe

1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup white sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 eggs
1 can creamed corn
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup white flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk or buttermilk

Preheat oven. Grease muffin pan. Cream together butter, sugar, honey, eggs, creamed corn and salt. Mix in flours, cornmeal, and baking powder. Mix. Stir in milk. Spoon into pans. Bake 20-25 minutes til lightly browned on top. This recipe makes 1 dozen muffins and made 8 Mickey Mouse Muffins. This recipe is a sweet corn muffin recipe. If you like your cornbread sweet, you will love this recipe.

Have a sweet day, Suzie
