We really enjoyed these blueberry muffins ellie. I halved the recipe and it made 6 beautiful muffins. After reading the other reviews, I used 1/8 cup of cornmeal, 1/2 cup of white flour and 1/4 cup of cornflour, it worked well. I must honestly say that the muffins didn't hang around long enough to get dry. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Rookies Tag.
Made these muffins this morning and had one for breaky while still hot,with lots of butter, nummy, lots of blueberries, very good. Had some more at lunch with our molded chicken salad, they were still very good but we found they were a tiny bit dry at this point. Love the blueberry buttermilk combination, but I think it might be the cornmeal that made them a little dry after they cooled.(Not so dry that we won't finish them!!) I Should also say I used splenda instead of sugar. I will make them again but I would use perhaps only half the amount of cornmeal and add more regular flour. Thanks for sharing.
I made a batch of these and froze them. After nuking them in the micro they were as good as baked to me. I also used frozen blueberries and they may have added more moisture. Thanks ellie2
