FUNDRAISING – CORNBREAD MUFFINS WITH MAPLE SYRUP CREAM CHEESE GLAZE

I made fried green tomatoes the other day which got me thinking about other great southern American foods I enjoy. I had recently seen a post online of some delicious cornbread muffins. The cravings started then kept building. 

I had nominated myself to make something for a vegan fundraising bake sale today so I said to myself “cornbread muffins it is.”

Despite a lot of searching I couldn’t find the earlier post that I had seen. I knew it was a fellow vegan food blogger but that’s as far as I got. So in true Plant Health Man style I did what I always do……make it up as I go along.

I had made cornbread before from a packet in my pre-vegan days so I thought it can’t be that hard, and it wasn’t.

Give it a try. They are delicious, either as a snack or to accompany a veggie stew or thick soup. Simply replace the bread you normally use to wipe up the juices at the bottom of your bowl with a cornbread muffin or two. 

The glaze if optional.
