Packed with whole grains, tender and moist, just a bit on the crumbly side, but not overly sweet. From The Baking Sheet, King Arthur's publication. Making these with the white whole wheat flour is best, although you can use whole wheat or even regular flour. When I made these, I sprinkled coarse sugar (or sparkling sugar) on top before baking.
- Preheat oven to 400°F; grease the wells of a muffin tin, or line with paper liners and spry the insides.
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and salt until fluffy Beat in the honey and the eggs one at a time, stopping to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl after each addition.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture mixtures in thirds, alternating with the milk; mix until batter is smooth. Gently fold the berries.
- Scoop batter by generous half cup into the wells of the prepared pan. Sprinkle the tops with sparkling sugar. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the tops are golden brown and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the oven and cool in the pan for 5 minutes, before removing them from the pan.
