Dear SOS: Several years ago you printed a recipe for Al’s New York Corn Muffins. They were tender and delicious. Somehow, my recipe has joined all those single socks. Please, could you reprint it?
Dear G. Waggoner: Happily. The recipe was my father’s. He baked them every day for the breakfast crowd at his little cafe in New York City’s Greenwich Village in the mid-1940s. The corn muffins are extremely crumbly but delicious. I used to love to lop off the muffin cap and butter the inside with sweet butter.
