Made with four different grains, these muffins have a heartiness to them that makes them perfect for breakfast on those days when you need something to grab and go. Baking: From My Home to Yours, by Dorie Greenspan
- 2⁄3 cup white flour
- 2⁄3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄3 cup cornmeal
- 1⁄3 cup oats
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1⁄3 cup maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
- 3⁄4 cup dried fruit (may mix dried cherries, raisins, and chopped prunes)
- Preheat the oven to 400*. Line a muffin tin with paper cups.
- Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk with the maple syrup, eggs, and butter.
- Pour the liquids over the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Don't overmix - these are muffins; they don't need to be real smooth. Stir in the fruit.
- Spoon the batter into the muffin cups and bake for about 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into one of the muffins comes out clean. Cool well before removing from the pan.
- Eat fresh or wrap and freeze for another time. These rewarm perfectly in the microwave, or you can just defrost them on the counter for an hour or so.
