Blue Cornmeal Blueberry Muffins

Recently I was gifted a bag of blue cornmeal. I often bake up corn bread or yellow cornmeal muffins but had never baked with blue cornmeal before. I found a recipe that looked good and changed it up by adding orange juice and zest. Blue cornmeal is not as gritty as yellow cornmeal and has a subtle flavour all it's own. 
(yields 12 large muffins)
  • 1 cup blue cornmeal
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • juice from 1 orange
  • zest from one orange
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  1. Stir together dry ingredients.
  2. Melt butter. While it's cooling beat together rest wet ingredients.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir to combine.
  4. Fold in fresh or frozen blueberries.
  5. Fill greased or paper lined muffin tins and fill to 3/4 full.
  6. Bake in 400ยบ oven for 25 minutes.
  7. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove to cooling rack.
