Need something zippy to add to cornbread ...

I have a basic recipe and it's fine. I see Martha Stewart, in the May edition of her magazine Living adds honey and lemon zest.

I see on Spark People that someone adds some fresh thyme.

What do you add, for flavor ? Thanks

From your post, not sure if 'zippy' means the same thing to you as it does to me. For 'zippiness', I add red pepper flakes, or some minced jalapenos or chipotles.

Chopped canned green chilies (1 small can per batch) - you could also add some cheddar cheese if you want to live high on the hog.

I don't like spicy foods. I'm sorry - zip meaning .. something interesting to add. Like orange zest, etc/
