Updated September 2, 2010

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 oz jalapeño Monterey Jack cheese, cut into 12 (3/4-inch) cubes

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Spray 12 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray, or line with paper baking cups and spray paper cups.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix milk, buttermilk, margarine and egg; blend well.
  • 3
    In large bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • 4
    Push dry ingredients aside to form well in center. Add milk mixture; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups, filling each 2/3 to 3/4 full. Press 1 cheese cube into center of each.
  • 5
    Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch. Immediately remove muffins from pan. Cool slightly. Serve warm.

  • Buttermilk is acidic, and baking soda is alkaline. The reaction of these two ingredients provides leavening in this recipe.
  • It is important not to overmix quick breads and muffins; overmixed batter produces tough baked goods with peaked tops.
  • Bake these muffins early in the day and let them stand, loosely covered, at room temperature. Reheat them at 375°F for 5 to 7 minutes.
