Using the basic recipe for my Cornmeal Squares and then adding substituting butter for the vegetable oil and buttermilk for the 2% milk and adding the lemon zest make this recipe more cake-like than muffin-like.Try it and see for yourself. That photo is Bob's(my hubby) dessert! LOL It's good with ice cream too!
