Blueberry Corn Muffins Recipe

"These tender corn muffins are bursting with blueberries," says Genevieve Fairchild of Chester, Iowa. "For a different fruity flavor, I sometimes substitute chopped apples for the berries."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Directions
