    I made this the other night for dinner.
    They were an "oh I think this'll work" type recipe.
    Don't know what any of you would think seeing the recipe, but this is what went into the mixing bowl....

    1 1/2 cups ap flour [which is an eyeball situation]
    3/4 cup yellow corn meal [again eyeballed]
    a cup or so milk
    1 egg
    2 Tbl melted bacon grease
    1 Tbl lemon juice concentrate
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 heaping Tbl raw sugar
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp Argo baking powder [new, contains no aluminum]
    2 heaping Tbl gala apple jam
    Mix and stir but not too much, don't overwork.
    Spray muffin tins, I used silicone muffin tins, heated the convection oven up before putting in there to 330*, put the dough into the muffin tins and ever so lightly did a few grains of cayenne on top of each. Why? I have no idea, sounded like it'd add a titch of a bite. Baked in convection oven for 7 minutes.
    Split open and use a pat of butter on each side. So good, so soft, so flavorful.

    These went with dinner that was crock pot chicken thighs in golden mushroom soup accompanied with buttered noodles and steamer edemame with soy and extra vigin olive oil...........
