I am a part of this fabulous home bakers group called “Baking Partners” on Facebook! Facebook is like a magic wand for food bloggers, I tell you! If you are a food blogger and not on Facebook, you are missing out big time! No kidding!
The creator and admin of this group Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen is a seasoned baker! You probably can find the breads and bakes from every region of the world on her blog! Such inspiring and still very humble work! Swathi along with Suja of Kitchen Corner came up with the challenge of the month for November!
Though I had these corn muffins on the blog earlier and I thought that I would not blog this one, but the results are so outstanding that I have to share it! It has just come out perfect! I have adapted their recipe to make it half portion and egg less and making it more savory than the regular. Somehow I don’t like the corn bread any sweet!
When I dug my greedy teeth into this lush golden bread, I was in food heaven! It reminded me so much of Indian Makki ki Roti! Such a yahoo moment for me! 😀
This is how I baked it!
