Mixed Berry Cornbread Muffins (GF)

attachment-54754c06e4b0232f032e67f7


We all know cornbread and we all know blueberry muffins, so you can imagine my delight when I tasted the world's best combination of the two.  Inspired by the beautiful, artistic pastries at LUX (one of my favorite coffee shops in Phoenix) my relaxing breakfast turned into a "I-must-recreate-this" obsession, starting way before I even left the building.  I couldn't help but question and wonder why I've never tried such a simple, delectable muffin myself.  Luckily, I had some cornbread mix ready to go from the gluten free bakery next door, so I mixed it up, threw in some frozen berries, and topped it off with sugar crystals to add a hint of sweet nothing to the top . . .  Perfecto . . .  mission/obsession complete.
