How to make it

  • Make corn muffins:
  • Preheat oven to 425°F with rack in middle. Brush muffin cups with softened butter.
  • Whisk together cornmeal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a large bowl.
  • Whisk together corn, buttermilk, egg, and melted butter in another bowl, then stir into flour mixture until just combined. Stir in 1 1/2 cups cheese.
  • Divide batter among muffin cups and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Bake until puffed and golden-brown and a wooden pick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Turn out onto a rack to cool.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
  • Make jalapeno butter while muffins bake:
  • Stir together butter, jalapeño, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Serve with muffins.
  • Cooks’ notes: •Muffins can be made 6 hours ahead.
  • •Jalapeño butter can be made 1 week ahead and chilled in an airtight container. Bring to room temperature before serving.
