Eagle Tavern Corn Muffins
3/4 c all purpose flour
2 1/2 t double acting baking powder
2 T sugar
3/4 t salt
1 1/4 c yellow stone ground cornmeal
3 T melted butter on bacon drippings
1 c milk
Preheat oven to 425 F and grease muffin pan with butter, oil or bacon drippings. Place muffin pan in the oven until it is sizzling hot. Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt, then add cornmeal. In a separate bowl, beat egg and add butter or drippings and milk. Combine with the dry mixture with a few rapid strokes. Put the batter in the hot pan and bake for 20-25 minutes. Makes about 15 muffins.
