Chilli Cornbread Muffins

  • Serves 10
  • Prep in 15 minutes
  • Cook in 15-17 minutes

I’ve always adored the idea of cornbread & being someone relatively open to culinary experimentation you’d probably think that would then have me whipping some up without hesitation.

But weirdly that hasn’t been the case until now.

And all I can say is god I wish I’d made these up sooner…..!
