Autumn Supper

Take a lighted Golden Spiced Pear Yankee candle and place it in the centre of your table

Add steaming hot bowls of homemade leek and potato soup

Add homemade three seed bread

And homemade Cheddar Cornmeal muffins

Follow this with Apple and cinnamon crisp with apples from the garden and you have the perfect Autumn supper! A real favourite in our household.

Recipe for Cheddar Cornmeal Muffins:

1 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup cornmeal

1 heaping tsp baking powder

1/2 tspn salt

pinch cayenne pepper

1 cup milk

1 egg

1/4 cup melted butter or margerine

11/2 cup grated cheddar

Stir together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and cayenne.

Beat egg, with milk and butter and add to dry ingredients, stirring to moisten.

Stir in 1 cup of grated cheese and spoon into greased muffin cups. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 375 degrees or equivalent for 15 - 20 mins.

(taken from the book Muffin Mania, my favourite muffin book of all time!)

These muffins are great toasted the next day too - if there are any left of course!!!
