Old Style Diner Corn Muffin

The Altitude Adjustment Section
This is a recipe for old style east coast diner corn muffin. More sweet and cakey than a regular muffin, they would cut these in half and slather with butter and throw on the grill where it would pick up the faint smell of grilled bacon. Yum! I had forgotten about these until I saw a thread on Chowhound, which reminded me how much I loved them.

1-1/4 cups yellow cornmeal
1-cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup vegetable oil

In a bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugars, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, beat egg, buttermilk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill a greased or paper-lined 12-cup muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen.
