You can use frozen berries and corn for this, but fresh is best.
MAKES 12 MUFFINS
1 cup all-purpose flour 1 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (see Note) 1 lemon 2 eggs 3 ounces whole milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Mascarpone cheese and maple syrup, if desired
11/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (see Note)
3 ounces whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mascarpone cheese and maple syrup, if desired
In large bowl, measure flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, sugar, blueberries and corn. Using a microplane, zest lemon into bowl. Lightly mix together with rubber spatula trying not to smash blueberries.
Make a well in middle of mixture. Measure eggs, vegetable oil, milk and vanilla into well. Juice lemon into mixture; pick out any seeds. Mix until everything is moistened.
Line a muffin tin with paper liners or spray well with pan spray. Fill tins 3/4 full. Bake 15 minutes. Rotate tray and bake 10 minutes longer just until tops feel set by lightly tapping with finger (muffins should bounce back slightly). Remove from oven and allow to cool in tins for 10 minutes before removing.
If desired, serve each with a dollop of mascarpone cheese and drizzle with maple syrup.
Note: If using frozen blueberries and corn, thaw and drain.
