While I was shopping at a fruit stand up in the North Carolina Mountains last year, I met a person who told me her favorite thing to bake was her Mom's corn muffins. I had been searching for the perfect corn muffin so I offered her my Tiramisu recipe in trade. She copied down my recipe and I ended up with the best ever corn muffin recipe. They are AWESOME!!

1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a separate bowl, mix milk and egg. Fold liquid mixture into flour mixture. Spoon evenly into muffin tins, fill to top.
