Cheesy Chive Cornbread Muffins

Makes 8 mini loaves or 12 muffins Prep Time 2 minutes   Cook Time 15 minutes   Rated:

An American cookbook wouldn’t be complete without a cornbread recipe, but I have never been a fan of cornbread. I didn’t see the appeal, until I added a whack of cheese that is. I admit that I ate more than one, which is unusual for me. Don’t forget the butter—loads of it. These are perfect on their own, and as an accompaniment to anything saucy requiring plate mopping. For more great American style recipes and flavours, don't forget to pick up a copy of Tenina's America. Always on sale!


Serve with lots of butter as is, and as an accompaniment to any of the Chilli recipes or the Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya.
