Notes: Goes great with honey butter! I love spice, and this is a tasty spicy cornbread! Today was a tired one; a long day at work, so I needed something to wake me up and stimulate me. A kick of cayenne is the perfect thing! You can add hotter peppers, or leave them out, and serve with a yummy chili on a cold day.
