Blueberry and Cornbread Muffins

I really love Pinterest, I'll admit it. It is a great way to kill some time. I have found some great inspiration there and I tack on pictures to boards I classify by type. My food board is pretty great. I recently came upon cornbread blueberry muffins. We get a Homegrown Organic produce box every week and a pack of blueberries came with it this weekend. I was pointed in the right direction. I was feeling a little under the weather and cooking always makes me feel better. So, I put on my apron last night and baked some muffins, the recipe is a cornbread recipe from the Joy of Cooking, with a few twists.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Wet and dry ingredients are prepared separately.

In one bowl, place:

1 cup of all purpose unbleached flour
1 cup of cornmeal 
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1/2 tsp of salt
2 1/2 tsps of baking powder

In another bowl, mix altogether:

3 tsps of melted butter
1 egg
1 cup of milk 

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix in a cup of blueberries and stir well. Add batter to a 12 cup greased muffin pan. Cook for 15-20 mins or until golden brown. Serve immdiately with a pat of butter.

So good! A new favourite at home.
