Now I know there are a thousand
recipes out there for corn bread.
Many of you have that "one" that you make
over and over...never straying to even look
for another to try your hand at.
However I have made it a personal
goal of mine to come up with a
"Southern" worthy corn bread recipe.
This has got to be one of my favorite
versions that I have come up with.
It has a light sweet flavor without taking away
from the rustic flavor of the corn.
My family likes to top this with some
sweet Honey butter.
