  • 1 1/4 cups unbleached white flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup sesame or olive oil
  • 1 cup milk or plain yogurt
  • Preheat an oven to 400°F and butter or grease a 12-cup muffin tray.

  • Combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Stir together and make a well in the center.

  • Beat the egg in a small bowl until frothy. Mix in the oil and milk or yogurt. Pour into the well of dry ingredients and stir just enough to moisten. The batter should be lumpy.

  • Fill the muffin cups and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned and a cake tester comes out clean. Remove from the oven and leave the muffins in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove and cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or cooled.
