Blueberry Goat Cheese Muffins

Blueberry Goat Cheese Muffins

Restless and craving a baked treat on a lazy Sunday evening, I made these blueberry muffins with soft unripened goat cheese. The addition of tangy goat cheese is barely perceptible to the palate itself, but it enhances the sweetness of the fruit and adds a delectable creaminess to these muffins that literally melt in your mouth, especially when served warm. I can honestly say these are some of the tastiest blueberry muffins I have ever eaten, and that's saying something, because blueberry muffins are my favorite berry muffin.

  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 large egg

  • Preheat an oven to 400° and generously grease a 12 cup muffin tray with butter.

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, goat cheese, blueberry jam, butter and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in the blueberries.

Yum these muffins look great! I don't usually love goat cheese (though I'm trying it out every once in a while to see if I can change my mind) but the way you described how the goat cheese adds a delectable creaminess... mm that sounds so good. And I love cornmeal in muffins.
