The wonderful combination of spicy and sweet perk up this corn muffin recipe. The chunks of peaches offer a pleasing contrast to cayenne pepper and jalapeno.
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat 18 mini bundt muffin cups (about 2-1/2 inches across) or plain mini muffin cups (2-1/4 x 1-1/4 inches) with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Mix flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cayenne in large bowl. Whisk buttermilk, oil, eggs and jalapeno in medium-size bowl.
3. Make well in center of flour mixture. Add egg mixture all at once to well; add peaches to well. Stir liquid into flour mixture just until combined and flour mixture is evenly moistened. Spoon 1/4 cup batter into each muffin cup.
4. Bake in 400 degree F oven 17 minutes, until lightly browned. Let cool in cups on rack 5 minutes. Turn out onto rack; let cool. Makes 18 muffins.
