Makes 10 muffins.

Blue cornmeal contributes color, flavor, and texture to these delightful muffins. Feel free to use yellow or white cornmeal instead.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°. Combine 1/4 cup sugar, 2 1/2 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or fingertips until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.

Step 2

Combine 1 1/4 cups flour and next 5 ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended; make a well in center of mixture. Combine egg, milk, and oil; add to cornmeal mixture, stirring just until moistened.

Step 3

Combine blueberries, 1 tablespoon flour, and 1 tablespoon sugar, tossing gently to coat. Fold blueberry mixture into batter. Spoon batter evenly into 10 (2 1/2-inch) muffin cups coated with cooking spray; sprinkle cinnamon mixture over batter. Bake muffins at 400° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned and muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. Remove from pans immediately.

I thought these were terrible. The recipe works fine, in the sense that following the instructions leads to very pretty muffins. I just thought they were relatively tasteless, and I found the addition of the cornmeal to create an unpleasant texture for a muffin. They might have been slightly better if the lemon zest had been excluded and the cinnamon had been added to the batter, but the texture was still a problem for me. I ate three bites and threw the entire batch away. I'm not sure I've EVER done that before.

Love these - made them 2 weeks in a row. Father's Day shared 6 with my Dad, and Mom. They thought it was a great gift.

Amazing! I love the use of cornmeal in this (I used regular yellow). It adds a bit of texture and makes it less cupcake-like than most blueberry muffins. I'll be making these again - may even try plain or with cranberries or other fruit.
