Total time: 35 minutes plus 2 hours cooling | Makes 12 muffins.
  • 2 cups cornmeal

  • 1 egg
  • 1/1/4 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Step 1Combine corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder and dash salt in large bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat egg in small bowl. Stir in milk and vanilla. Add to corn meal mixture, stirring just enough to moisten. Do not over-beat.

Step 2Fill each of 12 muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake muffins at 350 degrees until golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

Step 3Let cool thoroughly in muffin cups before loosening from pan or they will fall apart. Carefully remove from pan.
