Cornbread Muffins

Last week I got to help Sierra's kindergarten class make these yummy muffins. The kids were so excited to help. It was fun to hear them talk about baking, although, it was a little sad to me that in each of the four groups only about one or two kids in each group had ever cooked with their mom or dad before. They were all so eager to help so hopefully they'll ask their parents if they can help in the kitchen...especially during the holiday season. Here is the recipe we used. Each of the kids gobbled them up!

¾ cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
¼ cup cornmeal
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
½ cup milk
1 egg
¼ cup oil

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine dry ingredients. Combine milk, oil, and egg with a fork. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix. Pour 2/3 cup full. Bake mini muffins for 8-10 minutes and regular muffins for 18-20 minutes.
