There must be a gazillion recipes for corn muffins; I ran across this one when looking for something a little "different". The original used Lemon & its zest; I personally like Lime better, which is why I happened to have some in the frig! I made some other substitutions, like upping the sugar content; I like my cornbread SWEET, like a good Hoosier does. I also halved the recipe initially, because I only wanted to make a handful.
