“This is BY FAR the best cornbread I have ever had. I got it from a special section of the Minnesota Monthly Magazine a few years back. I had a lot of the glaze left over, so you can easily make ½ of the glaze recipe and have enough. I made cornbread in a 9x13 inch pan and it was fully cooked in 25 minutes, which would lead me to believe that cooking time for the muffin tins may need to be reduced (I recommend checking after 15-18 minutes). Enjoy!”
