Delicious Gluten-Free Blueberry Corn Muffins

Recipe by  

"After I was diagnosed with a gluten sensitivity, I played around with various recipes so that I could not only eat food that worked with my system, but also enjoy it. I love this blueberry muffin almost as much as the original, all-purpose flour version, and the rest of my family can enjoy it too without feeling like it's a sacrifice. I generally use brown rice flour, but white rice flour may yield a fluffier muffin. I personally like the texture the cornmeal adds, but for a more traditional muffin, feel free to do all rice flour (maybe half brown, half white)."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Stir milk and vinegar together in a small bowl; set aside to sour for 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Beat white sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy and smooth. Add eggs, egg yolk, soured milk, and lemon zest; beat until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.
  4. Mix rice flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; slowly stir flour mixture into creamed butter mixture until just mixed. Gently fold in blueberries. Pour batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full. Sprinkle each muffin with raw sugar.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes.

  • Cook's Note:
  • Enjoy as is, or do as my 3 1/2-year-old loves and make these into breakfast cupcakes by letting cool completely and top with a fruity Greek yogurt or softened cream cheese well-mixed with jam to taste, and top with a blueberry for garnish.

Great recipe with great muffin like texture. The second batch I made I substituted corn flour for the corn meal and used buttermilk. The second batch tasted the same but instead of having a smooth top they were rough and edgy like a bakery muffin. I also use super fine rice flour, it "opens" up the muffin. Have also made them using fresh peaches.

peaches instead, plus a bit of almond extract, and used coconut oil instead of butter. I baked it in a 9x9 pan and it was amazing!

My sister is on a special diet so our family is new to gluten free cooking. This recipe was delicious; my husband did not know it was gluten free until I told him. The texture is nice and light. The lemon zest and soured milk add to the layers of flavor. I had a request to add more berries, which I will do next time.

These are delicious muffins. True, they have a bit of texture on account of the corn meal, but that makes them seem more wholesome. I didn't have any blueberries and so made them without and they were still very tasty.

I used a glutenfree flour blend(without xanthan gum) rather than all rice flour, also added 2 tbl of ground flax, and used lemon juice instead of vinegar, baked for 25mins. Preheated the oven to 425F, then lowered it to 375F when I put in the muffins. Wonderful recipe! Great flavour, not dry.

Awesome! I didn't add the blueberries. I'm happy because they rose beautifully!
