Raters complained of boring flavor and dryness – so think about that.
1 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup fat-free buttermilk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425°.
Lightly spoon flour and cornmeal into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Make a well in center of mixture. Combine buttermilk, oil, and egg whites; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
Spoon batter into 10 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. Remove muffins from pan immediately; place on a wire rack. Serve warm.
