Makes 12 muffins

Prep and Cook Time: 1 hour. Notes: Look for blue cornmeal at natural-foods stores such as Whole Foods Markets. Pearl sugar (available from King Arthur Flour, lends a pleasant crunch, but you can substitute 1 tbsp. granulated sugar if you like.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400º and generously grease 12 muffin cups (1/2-cup capacity). Sift cornmeal, flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, pour liquid ingredients into well, and stir to combine. Fold in berries.

Step 2

Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full with batter and sprinkle tops with pearl sugar if you like. Bake until golden on top, about 25 minutes. Transfer tin to a rack and let cool 10 minutes before removing muffins.

Step 3

Great recipe! I used 1/2 cup white flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour as well as frozen blueberries and they were delicious! Many blueberry muffins are too sweet but these were just perfect!

These muffins are great! I used what I had on hand; regular cornmeal (about 1/2 a cup, supplemented by 1/2 cup spelt flour), one egg, and 1% instead of buttermilk-- they still came out delicious.
