If you ask me to pick one, I would prefer a savoury muffin to a sweet muffin but both types are good for afternoon tea with a cup of hot apple tea. And whenever Josh is around I have to bake some goodies for tea time coz he loves to munch on chocolate cakes, buns or muffins. I chose to bake this savoury muffins for I have the ingredients at hand for this savoury muffins. This is a delectable muffin and you can eat as many as you want , for it can be quite addictive. The bacon bits make this muffin so aromatic and flavorful and packed with fresh corns and red and green capsicum making this one nutritious muffins for the young and old.
The texture of this muffin is light and fluffy...normally muffins are a bit compact but this savoury Corn & Bacon Bits Muffin turns out to be great...soft, light and fluffy packed with bursting flavors too. I did it once without the corn kernels but for this time, I added in corn kernels and gosh it was delish.
