i am looking for the Woolworths, cornbread muffin recipe, if you can help 
it would be greatly appreciated 

Hello Beck,

I have a partial scanned copy of "The Woolworth's Recipe Manual" that was used by the "lunch counters" in F.W. Woolworth stores. I say "partial" because it is not complete. It does not contain any bread recipes, including the cornbread.

I tried searching the web for the cornbread recipe, but I had no success. There are a couple of sites on the web that claim to have "Woolworth's Cornbread" recipes, but as you can tell from their ".za" or ".au" addresses, these are the South African and Australian Woolworth stores. That company is not the "F. W. Woolworth's" that we had in the USA, and they do not use the same recipes that were used by F.W. Woolworth's in the USA.

So, I must say that I was unable to locate the recipe that you want. I will post this for reader input.
