    Hi Robyn,

    I’ve just finished making these as part of mine and my fiancee’s Shrove Tuesday Feast! I made the cheddar and jalapeno recipe, added in some chopped spring onion and their getting served with smoky, sweet pulled pork. They’re so good, I couldn’t help but sneaking in one as a snack while I tended to that waffle iron!

    Thanks for the recipe!

    I’m avoiding flour products and have never made cornbread using flour. Will this work using plain cornmeal?

    I’ve always made these with Jiffy mix for my family and they’re a hit. I can’t wait to try it with your recipe. I’m sure yours are much better!

    Picture doesn’t seem to match list of ingredients? Shows corn and something green in the picture of the waffles? Love corn bread so do intend to try the recipe!
