First off, it should be said this was another disappointment in the BBA Challenge. When I stayed in the US as an exchange student I had corn bread quite a few times, and it was always really yummy. It is, therefore, needless to say that I was really looking forward to making this bread.
To please my kids, I went for the muffin solution. I had all the ingredients, followed all the directions, but the muffins wouldn’t rise at all. I know, this was a quick bread without yeast, but usually baking powder DOES cause some growth, doesn’t it? Anyway, the smell was heavenly, but the muffins weren’t really that tasty. Actually, the flavor was ok, but since they were kinda gummy, they weren’t really appetizing. I wonder if the non-muffin version would have yielded a different result???
