Hye Thyme Cafe: Habanero Cheddar and Ham Corn Muffins

Welcome to the Hy
e Thyme Cafe. Although not all of my recipes are Armenian, the name is a little nod to my Armenian grandmother who is no longer with us. The Hye refers to all things related to her homeland, and she represents all things food-related to me, so the two just seemed to go together. I can't even claim that my Armenian recipes are truly Armenian, since Greece, Turkey, Armenia, Lebanon, Syria, and even Egypt share so many foods that they've all sort of morphed into one over thousands of years.

Whether you like to cook, bake, have never done either, or just like to play with your food...come on in and join me! :)

Habanero Cheddar and Ham Corn Muffins

Habanero Cheddar and Ham Corn Muffins: Hye Thyme Cafe

It took a few tries to get this one right, but they were soooo worth it! I finally hit on that perfect balance of sweet, heat, and savory. As you can see below, they are also not at all dry like some corn muffins or cornbread can be. Because of the ham, be sure to refrigerate or freeze any that don't get eaten right away.

INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 c fine cornmeal
1 c flour
1/3 c sugar
1 T baking powder
1 t salt
1 egg
1/2 c milk
3 T Dijon mustard
1/4 c honey
8.25 oz can creamed style corn
8 oz cooked ham, diced fine
6 oz habanero cheddar, shredded


  1. Preheat oven to 400реж and spray or line muffin pans (makes 18).
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the egg and milk, then stir in the mustard, honey, and corn.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and stir until just combined.
  5. Stir in the ham and cheese.
  6. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tins and bake for 20-25" until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
