  • 1 7 oz box Martha White Sweet Yellow Cornbread and Muffin Mix OR similar
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 2 tsp seafood seasoning [i.e. Seafood Magic or Old Bay]
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup whole buttermilk
  • 1 8 oz can cream style corn
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 8 oz jumbo lump crab meat
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper chopped
  • 4 Tbsp chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 medium green onion chopped
  • 2 Tbsp butter


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spritz 16 muffin cups with cooking spray. Set aside. In a medium-size mixing bowl sift together the corn muffin mix, self rising flour, seafood seasoning and garlic powder.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, cream style corn, vegetable oil and eggs. Whisk into the dry ingredients until fully moistened.
  • On the stovetop over medium-high heat, saute the chopped jalapeno, red bell pepper, green onion with 2 Tbsp butter. Season with salt and black pepper to your taste. Cook for 1-2 minutes until softened. Add the shredded cheese, crab meat and cooked vegetables to the batter. Mix well. Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted into the center shows moist crumbs. Serve hot.
