Cornbread Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Lennie

Fast, easy and tasty -- perfect with a stew or chili. These also freeze well. I first found this recipe in an older Bonnie Stern cookbook many years ago and have been making these ever since.

Lennie I made these for my son yesterday afternoon and by this morning they were all gone! Guess I will have to run off and make another batch before he gets home from school. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
