My preferred version of this recipe is muffins. It works well in either the 6-muffin or 12-muffin version. However, it can be made in any pan with a few adjustments!

Like a lot of recipes, this is one that I have had to tweak a bit over time. I have found that there are variations depending on whether or not I’m making muffins, a casserole, or a skillet. The casserole and skillet tend to come out more dry, so adding a bit more milk to those variations seems to do the trick!

They are delicious served warm with butter brushed on and/or with a drizzle of honey. They are definitely on the sweet side, so I would only recommend the honey if you have a major sweet tooth!
