Growing up, cornbread was in the regular rotation. My Mom used to make something called Johnny Cake, which was our version of cornbread.

For this recipe, I wanted a traditional cornbread taste made a little more fun! I like the little chunks of corn in these, but if you prefer it all blended in, I recommend you blend all the corn.

If you don’t have mini muffin tins, you could easily make them muffins instead, or even pour it all in an 9×9 pan and bake it.  Your baking time will be longer if you do regular muffins (15-20 min) or in a pan instead (probably 40-ish min).
