Millet Muffins

When I teach cooking classes in San Francisco, I like to serve a little something for students when they arrive.  These simple muffins are always a huge hit!

Makes  12 muffins.



1 egg
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup (80 g) melted butter
12 tablespoons millet
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk


Preheat an oven to 375F.

Beat the egg and brown sugar well with an electric mixer.  Add the melted butter and 1/2 of the buttermilk.  Stir in the millet. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together and add to the other ingredients.

Add the other 1/2 of the buttermilk. Do not mix the muffins together too much or the texture will not be good!

Place in greased muffin tins.  Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
