I can't remember where I got this recipe -in a box on the closet floor.
These are light and fluffy. The cornmeal just sets these little muffins up as great appetizers when baked in mini muffin tins or make in your regular muffin cups. The taste is delightful. Serve with honey-lemon butter or Ala- natural... Enjoy!
