Corn bread can be made with a variety of additions, such as pecans, corn kernels, diced red bell pepper, sliced green onions, bacon, or shredded Cheddar cheese. To make muffins, simply scoop the batter into 12 greased muffin cups and bake for 12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
