Strawberry Cornmeal Muffins
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup oil
1 cup milk
1 cup chopped strawberries, plus 1/2 cup for garnish
In a large mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add beaten egg, oil and milk, stirring until just combined. Fold in 1 cup chopped strawberries.
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full, then garnish with a few chopped berries. Bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes (mine were done at about 15-18 minutes) or until testing done with a toothpick.
Allow the muffins to cool before removing from the muffin tin. Run a sharp knife around the edge of each muffin, then pop out of the tin. Makes 12 muffins.
We ate these with cheesy scrambled eggs for breakfast.
