Cheesy Chive Cornbread Muffins
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!
