Raspberry Cornmeal Muffins

By: Georgeanne Brennan

Ingredients

1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of cornmeal
2/3 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 large of eggs
1 cup of whole milk
2 tablespoons of corn oil
4 tablespoons of melted butter
1 tablespoon of finely grated orange zest
1 tablespoon of fresh orange juice
1 cup of fresh raspberries coarsely chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, corn oil, melted butter, orange zest, and orange juice. Gently mix in the chopped raspberries.
  3. Pour this into the flour mix and mix just enough to combine the ingredients and make a lumpy batter. Do not overmix.
  4. Spoon the batter into muffin cups lined with paper cups or well greased with butter. Fill just to the rim of the cups.
  5. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into a muffin, about 18-20 minutes. Remove and let cool 5-10 minutes in the pan. Remove and serve hot or warm.
