    Top tips for making sweetcorn muffins:

    To stop your sweetcorn from falling to the bottom of the baking tin in the oven, lightly coat each of the corns in flour that you're using in the recipe. This will suspend the sweetcorn in the mixture and they won't all collect at the bottom of the tin.
