  • 1 cup whole or low-fat milk, heated to 110°F
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter and cooled slightly
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons rapid rise or instant yeast
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 90mins


Step 1

Warm oven: Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 200°F. When oven reaches 200°F, turn it off. Grease pan for the muffins.

Mix batter: Whisk milk, butter, and yeast in large liquid measuring cup until yeast dissolves, then whisk in egg.

With mixer, mix 1/2 cup flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, and salt until combined. With mixer on low, add milk mixture in a study stream and mix until dough comes together, about 1 minute. Gradually add remaining flour until incorporated. Increase speed to medium high and beat until batter is thick and elastic, about 3 minutes.

Let rise: Using greased 1/4 cup measure, transfer batter to muffin cups. Cover loosely with greased plastic wrap and place in turned-off oven until batter reaches rims of muffin cups, about 1 hour.

Bake muffins: Remove muffin tin from oven and heat oven to 375°F. Discard plastic and bake muffins until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool in pan for about 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire rack.
