Honey Corn Muffins

I am inordinately fond of these; they are good plain for breakfast or with soup, and freeze very well.

Pan 12-muffin tins, well greased or lined with muffin cups
Oven 400 degrees F        Time 20 minutes

  300 grams whole corn (if you can't find whole dried corn that is not popcorn, you can substitute popcorn, although the flour will be a bit grittier; blue corn yields a startling but lovely lavender interior to the still golden muffin)
    sustitute 2 cups finely ground cornmeal, preferably fresh ground
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs
3 tablespoons oil
1/3 cup honey
about 1 1/3 cup buttermilk  

Whisk together dry ingredients.  

In a 2 cup or larger measuring cup, whisk together the eggs, oil and honey.  Add buttermilk to a total volume of 2 C and whisk again.  

Mix together the wet and dry ingredients gently (don't overmix).  

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin and bake until the tops spring back when pressed lightly.
