Ingredients

  • 1 1/4

    cups whole-wheat flour or graham flour

  • 2

    tablespoons yellow cornmeal

  • 3

    tablespoons light or dark brown sugar, firmly packed

  • 2

    teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 2

    eggs, separated

  • 3

    tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, or sesame oil or olive oil

  • 1

    cup buttermilk

  • 2

    tablespoon sour cream or plain yogurt

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2

    tablespoons sesame seeds, for sprinkling

  • Unsalted butter, for serving

Directions

Preheat an oven to 375°F. Grease 9 standard muffin cups; fill the unused cups one-third full with water to prevent warping. In a bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, butter, buttermilk, sour cream and vanilla until blended. Stir the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture just until evenly moistened. The batter will be slightly lumpy. In a clean bowl, using a mixer with spotlessly clean beaters on medium speed, or a balloon whisk, beat the egg whites just until they form soft peaks. Using a large rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the batter until blended. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each one level with the rim of the cup. Sprinkle the muffins with the sesame seeds. Bake the muffins until they are golden, dry and springy to the touch and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 5 minutes. Unmold the muffins and serve warm or at room temperature, with butter.
