Mole Cornbread Muffins

After you go through the trouble of making mole, you find all sorts of ways to use it (besides sitting down with a bowl of it and a spoon). Cornbread would be useful and yummy in cleaning one's plate of mole. So why not combine the two? These turned out well. Very tasty indeed.

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

1 cup cornmeal 1 cup whole wheat flour 1 cup skim milk
1/3 cup non-fat, plain yogurt
2-3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1-1 1/2 cups homemade mole

1. 5 oz. cheddar cheese diced or crumbled

Mix all the dry ingredients. Mix all the wet ingredients except mole. Mix the two until just combined but don't over mix.

You are going to layer the mole and cheese between two layers of muffin batter. In a greased muffin pan, evenly distribute about 2/3 of the muffin batter, followed by the mole, then the cheese, and finally top each muffin with a small spoonful of batter.

I baked for 15 minutes, turning the pan half way through because the back of our oven is hotter than the front.

This sounds SOO incredible, reminds me of something my grandma makes, he cornbreads always have a tasty kick of flavor. As I was reading the recipe I was thinking " I just need the mole recipe", I'm glad I scrolled down a little to see it :). I need to make that for my hubby, he'll marry me all over again if I do :).

Sophie, give it a try. I like to experiment and as soon as I try a new dish I want to mix it into an old standard dish.
