Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins - Williams Sonoma
Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins

Since we went over quick breads and muffins in my baking class (see post about New School of Cooking Pro Baking 1 class), I wanted to practice!

Here are Williams Sonoma's Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins. I picked up the book Williams-Sonoma Essentials of Breakfast & Brunch and this recipe appealed to me. I love love love Everyday Food's Orange Cornmeal Cake, so I thought a fruity cornmeal-y muffin would be interesting.

Go over to the Williams Sonoma website and take a look at their muffin. Theirs came out crazy good looking. Mine look like, well, just the opposite of a supermodel muffin.

To be honest, these didn't rock my world, but I don't blame the recipe (or my curse of the blueberry muffin). I need to make them again with FINE-GROUND corn meal and fresh blueberries. I used frozen wild blueberries and I think the large size blueberries might give it a different texture and flavor. Also, I used regular cornmeal instead of the fine-ground cornmeal called for in the recipe. As my governor (who might be in tax trouble) says, I'll be back [to make these muffins again].

I think these look pretty, but I'm usually not a fan of mini wild blueberries so I do think using fresh could really make a big difference. What about trying a cornmeal cranberry muffin, since fresh cranberries are more available this time of the year?

I love blueberries, and here in Central America, they aren´t in my know, the frozen bagged ones. Fortunately, when I go stateside to do family visiting over the holidays, I´ve got blueberry muffins on my to-do list. These look yummy!

What are you talking about! Your muffins look better than the Williams Sonoma picture! Too bad you weren't happy with them though.
