Baked Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins Recipe

When I bring treats to the staff, I try to keep many of them healthy, which this moist muffin is. The cornmeal adds an interesting texture.—Elizabeth Bergeron, Denver, Colorado
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup plus 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar, divided
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the cornmeal, flours, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
  • 2. Fill greased muffin cups three-fourths full; sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 350° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in muffin comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
