Bacon and Chive Cornbread (8)

This cornbread is best served still warm from the oven, with or without butter dribbling over it, but also good cold. It can be served as a simple lunch, or with soup, and makes a great base for a chicken stuffing. As an alternative to the bacon , or to complement, you can jazz it up with a selection from chopped sun dried tomatoes, spring onions, parma ham, cubes of Cheddar or Parmesan , chilli and herbs if wished .
