  1. Position oven rack in center of oven; preheat to 400°; butter or spray 12 regular-size muffin cups; place muffin pan on a baking sheet.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, chili powder, salt, baking soda, and black pepper.

  4. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and, with the whisk or rubber spatula, gently but quickly stir to blend.
