Honey Cornbread

 I found cornflour in the Hispanic section, I used a bag of Maseca masa. I love to make tamales with their tamale flour, it's slightly courser ground.

1 c. flour
1 c. finely ground cornflour
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. baking powder

1/3 c. oil
1/4 c. honey
1 egg
1 c. milk

Preheat oven to 400

In a bowl mix together the dry ingredients. 

In a separate bowl whisk together the honey and oil. 
Whisk in the egg and then the milk.

Mix the two together and stir until fairly smooth,
A few lumps are normal.

Grease your muffin pan really well or use paper liners.

This makes exactly 12, so divide the batter between the cups and bake
for 15 - 17 minutes until golden brown on top

Variations I have tried: (and liked)

Saute 2 chopped jalapeno peppers and add to the batter

A handful of shredded cheddar cheese
Soak 1/2 c. raisins in water for an hour, pour water and raisins 
in a blender until chopped a bit but not pureed, 
drain and add to the batter with a dash of pie spice

1/2 can corn, drained
Garlic powder

Bacon, cheddar, and sauteed green onions
