Step 1

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a stand mixer bowl, cream the butter and sugar on high. Once the mix is light and fluffy, add eggs one at a time, changing to medium speed.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Step 3

Alternate between adding the dry mix and buttermilk to the egg mixture, about one third at a time.

Step 4

Add oil and mix on medium until just combined.

Step 5

Toss blueberries with flour, then fold them into the batter.

Step 6


Using your fingers, blend ingredients until the mixture resembles sandy pebbles.

Step 7


Using an ice cream scooper or large spoon, scoop batter into a lined cupcake tin, until each cup is about 3/4 full. Sprinkle crumble on top of batter and put tin on middle rack in oven.

Step 8

Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.

Step 9

Transfer muffins to wire rack and let cool.

Step 10

If you'd like a touch more sweetness, then serve these muffins with a pat of warm butter and a drizzle of honey.
