I used melted margerine and "soured" lactose free milk in this recipe. I chose to add the full amount of margerine called for in this recipe in the actual cornbread and make muffins out of them--I just sprayed each muffin cup lightly with non-stick cooking spray. I got 10 cornbread muffins out of one recipe. They looked beautiful but did not rise as much as I would have liked. My family liked this cornbread recipe, but they did spread a small amount of margerine and drizzled a little organic honey over their cut muffins before digging in. I'd make these again.

Just made this again without the corn but with a handful of chopped pepperoncini peppers and it was great! Only needed about 17 minutes of bake time. Will definitely make again and again
