The refrigerator light goes on...

As with all baked goods, this one has some fat. Using the egg and butter sparingly is enough to give the cornbread some body and still have a rich taste.


Cornbread Muffins

Servings: 12 | Serving size: 1 muffin or cornstick

Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

I would not multiply this recipe - make two separate batches. Muffins will keep for 24 hours in a plastic bag. To freeze muffins, wrap individually and remove from bag for 20 minutes to thaw. Slice in half and reheat in an oven that has been preheated to 300°F.

Cornbread Muffins recipe from Dr. Gourmet


  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup non-fat buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Let stand for five to ten minutes.

Line a non-stick muffin tin with muffin papers. Divide the batter into twelve muffins and bake at 325°F for about 15 minutes until golden on top.
