Sundried Tomato and Basil Corn Muffins


I have been waiting rather impatiently to use my teeny Basil forest. I am so proud of the little garden, especially since my little 2 1/2 year old lovie helped me plant the seeds. I have a few more recipes up my sleeve but this is the first that materialized.

This muffin was based mostly on the one from Gale Gand’s cookbook recipe that I found on a site I enjoy called Blissfully Domestic. I decided to add the additions to it. I found the recipe to be easy to do and had pretty nice results. I added the sun dried tomatoes due to my preference but you can substitute  with roasted red peppers if you like.  One last note if 8 muffins are not enough and you look to double you can add 4 oz of Greek Plain yogurt in place of the second stick of butter.  I just did a single batch to test but I would like to see how the yogurt works next time.  Enjoy 🙂
