Easy Cornbread Muffins with Guava

What are the Main Ingredients for this Brazilian Cornbread muffin with Guava?

  • Flour: All-purpose flour
  • Cornmeal: Yellow Cornmeal such as Quaker Brand.
  • Sugar: Granulated Sugar.
  • Baking powder: For leavening.
  • Whole Milk: It adds flavor and moisture; you can also use buttermilk or sour milk. See Notes.
  • Butter & Oil:I use a combination of softened unsalted butter and avocado oil. (I love to use Avocado oil, but any neutral-flavored oil or all butter will work).
  • Eggs: To act as a binder and add moisture and structure to the cake, make sure you use room-temperature eggs. 
  • Guava Paste: cut into cubes or ¾ cup guava preserves (see notes)

Homemade Brazilian Cornbread Muffins with Guava Success Tips

  • Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature: This helps ensure everything gets incorporated together properly; not doing this can result in poor emulsification.
  • Measure your flour and cornmeal correctly: Spoon and level the flour and cornmeal into the measuring cup rather than using the measuring cup as a scoop. The extra flour can result in dense and dry cornbread muffins.
  • Mix until the flour is just incorporated; overmixing can cause dense cornbread.
  • Grease your pan: This helps ensure cornbread muffins come out cleanly.

Ingredients

  • 400g (3 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 210g (1 cup) granulated sugar
  • 165g(1 cup ) Quaker yellow cornmeal
  • 28g (2 tablespoons) non-aluminum baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 30 ml (2 tablespoons) Honey
  • 2 cups whole milk, buttermilk, or sour milk, room temperature
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil or any neutral-flavored oil
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature 
  • 14.1 oz Guava paste, cut into cubes or ¾ cup guava preserves (see notes)

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease the top of a muffin pan and fill each cup with a paper liner.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt.
Combine the milk, melted butter, honey, avocado oil, salt, sugar, and eggs in a separate bowl.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones and stir with a rubber spatula until the ingredients are blended.

Easy Cornbread Muffins with Guava

With a standard ice cream scoop or spoon, place a rounded scoop of batter into the paper liners, filling each one about 3/4 of the way full. Then, push a small cube of guava into each muffin. 

Bake the cornbread muffins with guava for 25 minutes until the tops are lightly browned, and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool slightly and transfer the cupcakes to a cooling rack. Allow the cornbread muffins with the guava to cool for 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes:

  • If you’re using guava preserves, spoon the guava preserves into a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip. Push the tip of the bag through the top of the baked cornbread muffins and squeeze 1 to 2 tablespoons of preserves into the middle of each muffin. 
  • To make Homemade Sour Milk: Add 4 teaspoons of white distilled vinegar or fresh lemon juice to a measuring cup. Then, add with enough milk or heavy cream to equal 1 cup. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes until thickens and curdles.
  • Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature (this helps ensure everything gets incorporated together properly; not doing this can result in poor emulsification).
  • Measure your flour and cornmeal correctly (spoon and level the flour and cornmeal into the measuring cup rather than using the measuring cup as a scoop. The extra flour can result in dense and dry cornbread muffins.)
  • Don’t overmix ( mix until the flour is just incorporated. Overmixing can cause dense cakes).
  • Grease your pan (to help ensure cornbread muffins come out cleanly).
