  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup oil


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line the muffin pan with muffin liners.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until combined.
  • In a separate medium sized bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg, and oil until combined then pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until it just comes together. No need to overmix but make sure it is well combined.
  • Add batter to muffin liners going about ⅔-¾ of the way up and bake for 14-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool and enjoy.


Don’t overmix. No need to continue to get out every single lump in these muffins. Just make sure it all combines and then let it sit for a few minutes before adding to your muffin tins.
