Corn Muffins (with Almond Milk)

So, next time I don’t think I’ll be using almond milk to make corn muffins. They came out extremely crusty and they stuck to the paper liners too much. Also, they were pretty much tasteless. Good with butter, though!

I love this website, Dessert for Two. That’s where I got the recipe from. It is absolutely genius!! Next time I’ll follow the recipe word for word.


  • 1/2 cup stone-ground cornmeal ( I used extra fine cornmeal)
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (I added a bit more, but I do not think it was sugary enough even with that extra bit!)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder (I overdid this. That might have been part of the reason why they came out so icky)
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (I used almond milk instead of buttermilk. Yes, I know, it’s a BIG change)
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter


Preheat oven to 400F. In a bowl, mix the cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour. In another bowl, whisk the egg, milk, and melted butter together. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Pour the mixture into muffin paper liners and bake 12-15 minutes.

Looking good:

  1. Hi there 🙂

    Thanks for linking to my site.

    I’m sorry you had such a flop. You may add sugar to taste; I should have said that in my recipe. I’m from Texas and don’t like sweet corn muffins, so I just used 1 tablespoons 😉

    Yes, almond milk lacks the acidity of buttermilk. I wonder if that’s why they were sticky?

    Corn muffins dry out fast, don’t they?! I eat them straight from the oven slathered in butter 🙂

    • Thanks so much for your advice! I should have followed your recipe closely instead of going off and experimenting. Yes, they dry out fast, so I tried to eat them quickly! I’ll probably make them again with buttermilk.

      Your website is a great concept! I’m always trying to figure out how to make dessert for my boyfriend and me without having tons of leftovers.
