Buttermilk Corn Muffins

Local cornmeal. Local flour.  What should be local buttermilk (but instead is an attempt to use up a gifted half-bottle).  What do you get?

Buttermilk corn muffins!

I know this isn’t the best side dish on the planet if you’re trying to avoid gluten, but I like to follow the rule of everything in moderation (and they freeze well, too, so don’t be tempted to eat all 12 at once)! Other than that, I adapted this recipe, “Healthy & Delicious: Buttermilk Corn Muffins“, to use whole wheat flour instead, and it turns out to be a delicious muffin.  Chomp away!

While preheating your oven to 425* and spraying your muffin tin, you’ll just need to gather these ingredients (makes 12 muffins):

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour (original recipe does call for all-purpose, though)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Cooking spray

Next you’ll need to:

  • Grab a bowl and whisk together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Make an indentation in the middle.
  • Use a smaller bowl to whisk together buttermilk, oil, and eggs. Pour into dry ingredients. Mix everything until just moist
  • Evenly divide batter among muffin cups. Bake 12 minutes. Remove and cool on a wire rack.
  • ENJOY!

  1. Whole grain and whole wheat? They really don’t sound that unhealthy! I could eat at least three in one sitting, but I try to contain myself when others are around and just start with one… Self-restraint is so hard with homemade baked goods!

      • Very true! My mom is trying a gluten-free diet (by choice, not by allergy!), so I’m starting to delve into the world of gluten-free baking. But whole-wheat flour is still healthy, despite all of the current stigmas! (Plus the recipe looks fairly low in fat and sugar, which are more added bonuses!)
