Ok. If you are from the South or have ever visited, you know there is good cornbread, bad cornbread and great cornbread. This cornbread falls into the great category. Although it is simple at its roots, it is the perfect base for your heart’s desire. If you want Mexican-style, throw in some chopped peppers, cheddar and kernel corn. However, I just love this classic. This is also great for brunch as corn muffins!
Regular cornbread, ie: the recipe from the canister, is very dry. It’s meant to be that way since it’s served with soups and stews. It will absorb the liquid and make it moist.
This recipe produces a very moist, cake-like cornbread. I even convinced a former co-worker, who hated the graininess of regular cornbread, to try this and she loved it. I guarantee you will too.
A traditional, non-sweet flourless cornbread for eating with chili, pinto beans, ham and black-eyed peas, or using for a Southern stuffing. This cornbread is quite crumbly, because it has no flour, but it’s delicious. It can also be baked in a #10 cast-iron skillet, if you like. My aunts and my husband’s aunts made this cornbread during the Depression, when flour was hard to come by.
This is not your usual cornbread! This could be dessert! The Baldpate Inn is located in Estes Park, Colorado. All of their food is homemade. One time on a family vacation, I bought a small book called Baldpate Collections, which includes some of the Inn’s famous favorite recipes.
O.M.G. this is so good!
