tiny cornbread cupcakespumpkin cake to bring over to my mom’s. I just used Trader Joe’s boxed cornbread mix. Let’s be real folks, I don’t have time to make everything from scratch and sometimes boxed things are better than I could do. I made the cornbread according to the instructions on the box, then I put them in these little paper cups (filled up halfway), and baked them until they were a golden brown and my toothpick came out clean. After which, I inserted a toothpick in the center to make a little hole and then filled each hole with some honey. I made sure to do this while the cornbread was warm and still fresh out of the oven. Then, I made whipped cream with a bit of honey put in and voila! I topped my tiny cornbread cupcakes with the whipped cream and brought them to my mama’s house.
My mom was ooh-ing and ahh-ing over them, but it really wasn’t me, it was Trader Joe’s. With Christmas around the corner, I better get my holiday baking list ready. I’m thinking a Mexican chocolate cake is necessary to go with some fresh tamales. I’m hungry just thinking about it! What type of desserts do you eat for Christmas?
