Sweet Cornbread Muffins

Cornbread and chili are a great pairing, but we also eat this with dinner in muffin form.  We have started a tradition of making cornbread muffins when we have holiday meals.  These muffins go well with ham or turkey and you won’t find left overs.  Because these are sweet cornbread muffins, they offer a slightly sweet taste not found in regular cornbread.
