  • 1 2/3 cup  unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup stoneground cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup  white sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sour cream room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons  canola oil
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup whole milk room temperature


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a 24-count mini muffin pan with mini-muffin paper cups. Or a 12-count regular muffins tin. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine and set aside.

  4. In a separate bowl, cream together sugar and butter with a mixer until light and fluffy.
  5. With the mixer on low speed, add the beaten eggs, oil and sour cream, beating until well combined, careful not to over-beat. Stop to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  6. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the creamed sugar and butter, alternating with the milk. Beat on low until fully combined. Your batter should be fluffy and sticky.
  7. Spoon mixture into the prepared muffin tins.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes for mini muffins and 20-23 for regular muffins. A toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffins should come out clean or with just a few moist crumbs, but not raw batter.

  9. Serve muffins warm or room temperature.
