Do you ever wish you had a piping hot, fresh-out-of-the-oven cornbread muffin to go with that reheated bowl of chili? As "empty nester's" that happens quite often at our house.
We like the taste and convenience of those small boxes of JIFFY cornbread mix. They are easy, tasty and quick...but even THOSE "little" boxes are too much for just 1 or 2 people.
Here is my "empty nester trick": Mix (using the instructions on the side of the box) This will make enough for 6 muffins.
Put 6 cupcake liners in a cupcake pan and give them a TINY spritz of cooking spray. Divide the batter, evenly, between the cupcake liners but, DON'T BAKE THEM..........FREEZE THEM.
When you need a cornbread muffin.......take one out of the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for about an hour.
Bake at 375° (NOT the 400° that the package recommends) for 20 minutes......that's it!! Easy-peasy!!
