Parmesan Cornbread Puffs

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by jonesies

These light-tasting cornmeal muffins are coated with grated parmesan cheese after they are baked. Serve them with a bowl of chili or hearty soup. Taken from the "Quick, Healthy and Delicious Cooking" cookbook by BH&G. Updated: After one reviewer brought to my attention that using larger muffin tins resulted in very small "caps", I mentioned that I tend to use smaller muffin tins for this recipe. You of course, can decide which you prefer.

A wonderful and tasty corn muffin. I cut the recipe in half and it works fine. I cut down on the milk to adjust for the entire egg white. I just sprinkle the tops with the Parmesan. Will be making this again this winter. Thanks for posting this yummy low-fat recipe!
