2. Blend cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.

3. Stir together eggs, oil, hot pepper sauce, milk, 1/2 cup of the cheese and the corn in a small bowl. Stir into cornmeal mixture just until dry ingredients are moistened. Divide evenly among prepared muffin cups, 1/3 cup per indentation. Sprinkle muffins evenly with remaining cheese.
