My son has a 16 year old appetite and a 4 year old palate. Like most teenagers, he doesn't have time for a good breakfast in the morning. Two of these hearty muffins plus a bottled smoothie are great on the run to school and hold him until lunch time. Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips for a special treat. But no raisins. Because they are evil, you know :)
From Cooking in the New South. A little lighter than most corn bread recipes. Can be made with white or yellow corn meal. If you don't have buttermilk handy, adding 1 tsp vinegar to regular milk and letting it curdle for about five minutes will have a similar effect.
