Cornbread Muffins

Ages ago, I wrote a formula for cornbread.  I wrote several.  Tested them, one by one.  Then back to the lab for another draft.  Only this time, I accidentally doubled my butter.  Even though I wrote it for half the amount, I still doubled it.

Turned out to be the best cornbread muffins, I ever made.

I love it when stuff like that happens.

  6. Alex: Writing food to me, is the same as writing. All kinds of twists and turns and sometimes, the mistakes are the best part.

    Zombiecowboy: And for whatever reason, they taste better after they rest from the oven.

    Bard: I really have to get back to writing recipes so that other people can read my steps and understand them. As opposed to the hand-written notes I have now - which are sometimes, scribbles.

    G: Hello G. Thanks for the nice comment and thanks for stopping by.

  9. Desert Scribe: Love, love, love using hot peppers in food. So yummy. Just made bagels with chili flakes for a mild kick.

    But these guys went without because I like the sweet taste of the corn and cream together.

    Num, num, num.

  10. But I'm trying to lose weight. I need them with half the butter not twice.

  16. Doubling the butter even helps when using a pre-made boxed corn bread mix. I have found that to be the case, at least.
