This works as cornbread muffins, too! I am not a huge fan of making cornbread as a round or square cake shape… they just are too messy that way. Instead I like to pour the batter into muffin tins lined with cupcake/muffin papers. This recipe works great as muffins. I pour the batter almost to the very top of the paper liners then I bake this at 375 degrees, but I have a convection oven so the heat is usually 25 degrees less than the normal temperature… so you can cook it at the suggested heat of 400 degrees with a normal oven. It takes 20-23 minutes for a toothpick to come out clean. The tops are always nicely browned and the muffins are perfectly cooked. The only other minor change I make is I use a medium grind cornmeal that is a little more course. It makes the cornbread more like a true “comfort food”. If you don’t like that extra crunch then use a finer grind. EVERYONE loves this- it is always on request from my guests and family, “Can you make your special cornbread?” It only takes about 5 minutes if you use a stand mixer. Very easy and very yummy! People will love that you made this from scratch. Oh yeah, and for you calorie nuts: I have calculated that if you make 12 muffins out of this batter, it runs about 180 calories per muffin or 2160 for the whole batch.
