Despite it all (I am having surgery tomorrow for my recently discovered partially detached retina, and had a lot to do before not being able to read/type, etc. for a while), I made it just in the nick of time with this post. And I am glad I did, these muffins were TERRIFIC. Yum Yum Yum. Thank you Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake for picking this recipe.
I saw that many other TWD'ers didn't like them or skipped them because they are cornbread purists. I respect that, but these were right up my husband and my alley - we love spicy food, the spicier the better. In fact, I have a Costco size bottle of Tabasco on my desk at work, and bring it to lunch meetings - I am serious. So these were perfect.
I also made them dairy free buy substituting soy milk for the milk (and adding 1 tsp of cider vinegar to the soy milk) and Nucoa margarine for the butter. My dairy eating husband loved them dairy free just the same. Thanks Dorie. Check out the other TWD posts here.
