- 3⁄4 cup buttermilk
- 1 1⁄2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)

- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
- In a small bowl, whisk together egg, egg white, vegetable oil and buttermilk. Pour into flour mixture and mix until almost combined.
- Add the blueberries and stir to distribute.
- Evenly divide the batter into the prepared muffin tin.

I just made these for breakfast and I am really pleased with the way these turned out! They have beautiful blue color and the recipe is perfect for company. I 've been searching for quick starter muffin for guests and I think this is it. Please note that I used powdered buttermilk and I had to increase the bake time to 18.5 minutes. I figure it's because I'm at a higher altitude; next time I'll add an extra two tablespoons of flour. Yum!
I made these for my girlfriend and her nine children for breakfast on the morning they were relocating house up to the mountains (I doubled the mixture). I kept a couple for myself and they were very moist and soft, and a very pretty hue. Will be making them again.
