What do you make when you have no time but still want to make something sweet? Something that is yummy and takes almost no time to prep?
Ready in 30 minutes!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg beaten
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup pureed pears *I used Magic Bullet to puree 2 canned pears
3/4 cup milk
In a stand mixer bowl mix together cornmeal, milk, egg, oil and pear puree. Mix in a medium speed for few minutes. Then add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
If you want to make 2 different colours, like I wanted to for St Patty´s Day, divide the batter into two separate bowls and add desired colour to it. I wanted to add green but unfortunately I only had neon green 🙂 So I had to use the neon!
Spoon batter into muffin cups, you can do one colour on top, the other one in the bottom or however you like, I did random patterns 🙂
Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes. I went with 20 minutes since my muffin cups were a bit bigger than usual.They turned out very cute, not very St Patrick´s Day green but that was all I could manage 🙂 They tasted very nice and next time I might even add more pear and maybe not even totally puree it. And a lot of other colourful fruits and berries since I couldn´t do it this time since I wanted the green colour to be visible 😉
Have a wonderful day 😉
