Corn Cupcakes

Today I would like to introduce you to a healthy and hearty snack, cornmeal tarts.

Corn flour contains essential, i.e. vital, amino acids such as leucine, valine, phenylalanine, isoleucine and threonine.

The high proportion of roughage in cornmeal is particularly noteworthy, as it swells up in the intestines and thus contributes to good digestion. Cornmeal is also said to have blood sugar-lowering, cholesterol-lowering, and anti-inflammatory properties.

These health benefits of cornmeal were the reason my family used to serve dishes that used cornmeal very often.
