Why I picked it up: Haven’t had cornbread in awhile. I don’t particularly like cornmeal-only cornbread, I prefer to use flour. So, I thought we could try it.

Summary of Preparation: You mix the ingredients into a batter, but let it sit for a few minutes before you pour it in the pan and bake it. And yes, we greased the pan (butter…. mmmmm), but I guess it needed more.

Initial impression: Cupcake.

Lasting impression: It’s sugar. Lots and lots of sugar. So, if you enjoy Yankee cornbread… you will like it. The texture is fluffy like a yellow cake.

Recommended Accompaniments: I initially served this with black bean soup, but I served the leftover portions with sugared strawberries for a quick shortcake dessert.

Kid friendly: They gobbled it up, of course. It was mostly sugar!

Repurchase point: If I want to have strawberry shortcake, sure. But as a savory bread item, can’t do it.
