Well. To start, cornbread is as important... and controversial... as the chili its paired with. I use several different recipes, depending on what it's going with. Today I was just browsing, looking for something I hadn't tried yet to go with my Firehouse chili. "Sour cream" caught my eye. I've used it in many things to maintain moisture. Quick breads, sandwich bread, muffins, etc. So I was not surprised when these muffins turned out moist yet properly cornbread crumbly, perfect golden color, perfect golden light crust on top, perfect sweetness. I must admit my hand automatically reached for the homegrown honey jar rather than all that sugar... I restrained myself to just a tablespoon of honey in a halved recipe, and used only 1/4 the sugar. Only real change I made. And that was only b/c I was unscrewing the top of the honey jar before I realized what I was doing. :) Very good recipe. Used unbleached flour, worked fine. Used light sour cream, worked fine. Used homegrown brown and blue eggs, worked fine... probably added to the richness of the color, as they are much darker than commercial white eggs. Muffins baked just through at 375 for 27 minutes. Easy, fast, yummy. My 4 y/o son scarfed FOUR in as many minutes. Will use again. Thank you!
