A really easy mielie (AKA corn) bread, lovely with a braai (South African for BBQ) or just as a snack. It's delicious with apricot jam too. I sometimes bake in giant muffin tins and freeze for lunches.

I halved the recipe and came out with 9 muffins, the batter was quite thick compared to the regular muffins. I sauteed the onions with a butter before placing on top of muffins. The muffin itself was quite bland, with a slight corn flavor. It is highly recommended to put grated cheese,onion and parsley on top.

Fantastic recipe, a real winner. Taking literally a couple of minutes to whip up it is possibly the easiest side dish to MAKE to accompany a barbeque... Of course the guests thought it was fantastic and said I'd gone to so much trouble.... lol
