Quite different muffin size corn bread, very good taste!! The onions really come through and the red pepper makes a nice presentation. Very buttery, but not sure if I used the correct amout of butter? The ingredients say 1/2 stick butter and the steps says 1/2 cup butter. So I used the 1/2 cup and it did seem to be ok. Does a 1/2 stick = 1/2 cup?? They were very buttery!! thanks for sharing.
