A few months ago our neighbors brought us over this corn bread and it was scarfed up in about 2 seconds flat. I just have memories of the kids literally cramming it into their mouths-lol! I don't know what makes it 'Jamacian' but it has a lot of sugar and butter and is super delish so who cares. It should be renamed a cornbread cupcake. When our neighbors brought it to us, it was in a 8" round cake pan and she said the recipe made 2 pans worth. As muffins, it ended up making 2 dozen. They are really light and fluffy and I guarantee you'll love them! Our Wednesday night Summer BBQ's have officially started back up and so we took these tonight and they were gone in the blink of an eye!
