Having Faffed Around with a few Cornbread recipes, I found this one is one of the easiest and the most delicious. Moistened with honey and cream, it has the right amount of sweetness and no dryness. I served this with Tomato Basil Soup last weekend at my Festive-Smestive dinner and it was a huge hit. One of my dinner guests actually asked if he could take the leftovers home. Co-incidentally, he was wearing a yellow sweater that was an exact color match to the cornbread (Benjamin Moore could not have come closer)(see photo on previous post). So honestly, who better to take it home?
I used Ontario local honey which has a distinct flavour. Store bought honey comes from overseas sources and is a mix of (usually cheaper) honeys. Buying grocery store honey does nothing to help local bee populations and beekeepers. Our Bees are dying.... please look around for local product, often available in small towns, flea and farmer markets, small groceries etc. BUYING LOCAL HONEY DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Look online for Land O lake corn bread recipe.
