- Vegetable oil cooking spray
- 1 cup coarse yellow cornmeal
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 cup rice flour
- 1/4 cup potato starch
- 2 tablespoons tapioca starch
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- Coarse salt
- 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups seedless red grapes, halved
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with baking cups, and lightly coat each with cooking spray.
Whisk together cornmeal, sugar, rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Whisk together buttermilk, oil, and eggs in a medium bowl. Fold buttermilk mixture into cornmeal mixture, then gently fold in 1 cup grapes until combined.
Spoon batter into baking cups, filling each three-quarters full. Top with remaining 1/2 cup grapes, and sprinkle with remaining tablespoon sugar. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of each comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack, and let cool for 10 minutes. Turn out muffins onto rack. Let cool completely.
