  • 1 pkg 8.5oz cornbread mix
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • fresh or dried apples
  • dried apricots, prunes, raisins
  • peanut butter for 'glue'
  • toothpicks for attaching fruit


  • Prepare cornbread batter as package directs.
    Stir 1/4 cup raisins into batter. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.
    Bake muffins according to package directions. Cool.
    * Or add raisins to your favorite cornbread recipe.

To decorate:

  • Make two slits in the muffin, one slightly larger for the feathers. For tail feathers, cut strips of apricots and prunes. Pinch ends together. Insert into the larger slit and arrange fan-like, using toothpicks if needed for support. Use a dab of peanut butter to stick a raisin to a fresh or dried apple. Don’t forget to add a thin slice of apricot to the neck for the ‘wattler’!
