I'll be posting about Saturday's dinner -- tonight's too unless I hear a good reason why not -- over at the other blog, but it included corn muffins, which I make from mix. A very good mix; please note their proud announcement:
I do have one quibble; the instructions call for one (1) egg but the muffins or cornbread will hold together a lot better if you add two instead. I think it's tastier, too.
There's one more trick to try if you can -- growing up, I had a pair of ducks, Alice and Emma, (from a series of children's books the title and author of which elude me) who delivered a fresh pair of eggs each and every morning and duck eggs are the A ticket for cornbread and other hearty breads. They are richer and have a somewhat stronger flavor. It probably helped that our supply was seriously fresh, too.
(Ducks are quirky creatures. Egg-laying seemed to come as a surprise to those two. They'd raise a fuss until the eggs would get collected! Just a couple of irresponsible partygirls, I guess).
