Total Time: 
Serves: 12 muffins
  • 1 cup fine yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup cane sugar (or substitute)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup milk + 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 4 tablespoons applesauce
  1. Preheat oven to 350(F) degrees and prepare muffin tin with non-stick spray. In a small bowl, mix milk and lemon juice and let curdle for a few minutes. Add baking soda and salt then stir again. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk butter and sugar until combined. Add applesauce and eggs then whisk again. Add in the milk mixture and whisk vigorously until evenly combined.
  3. Use a spoon to stir in cornmeal and flour. Do not over mix. It should look a little bit thin and somewhat lumpy. Evenly divide batter into prepared muffin tine. Bake for 25-27 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
  4. Let cool for a few minutes before serving. Will keep in an airtight container for a few days.
