  • Muffin Tin or 8x8 baking pan


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon table salt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries or unthawed frozen
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar packed
  • ¾ cup frozen corn, defrosted
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 stick, melted and cooled slightly
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar


  • Adjust oven rack to middle position; heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 12 hole muffin pan or 8-inch-square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Gather all your ingredients.
  • Whisk flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl until combined.
  • Add blueberries toss well to coat, set aside.
  • In food processor or blender, process brown sugar, thawed corn kernels, buttermilk, and maple syrup or honey until combined, about 5 seconds.
  • Add eggs and process until well combined (corn lumps will remain), about 5 seconds longer.
  • Using rubber spatula, make well in center of dry ingredients; pour wet ingredients into well.
  • Begin folding dry ingredients into wet, giving mixture only a few turns to barely combine; add melted butter and continue folding until dry ingredients are just moistened.
  • Pour batter into prepared baking dish; smooth surface with rubber spatula. Sprinkle the granulated sugar over batter.
  • Bake until deep golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 25 to 35 minutes.

  • Cut into pieces and serve. Or serve whole if you are making muffins like I did.
