About this recipe: Warm from the oven, corn bread is just irresistible. This version has sweetcorn kernels added, which makes it even more delicious. It will complement any brunch meal, but especially a spicy omelette.
To make a Tex-Mex corn bread, add some spices to add a subtle flavour. Use ½ tsp chilli powder (or more to taste) and ¼ tsp ground cumin.
Sweetcorn has a surprisingly large mixture of important nutrients. It is particularly rich in folate, which helps reduce the risk of heart disease. It also contains lutein, which is healthy for your eyes. Plus, sweetcorn offers protease inhibitors, which are chemical compounds that may help to prevent cancerous tumours from developing.
Love this. I made it with wheat free flour instead of normal and it worked fine. It was really nice with some soup. - 13 Mar 2010
Very tasty, but 16 servings? I baked this in a "log"type pan that has markings every 1/2" and this filled it nicely, so I would say 8 servings is more like it. I added more than half a can of drained canned corn, subbed light brown sugar for the honey and used yogurt instead of milk and added a shake of chipotle seasoning I had for kick. Other than those changes I followed the recipe and my three men almost finished the whole thing in one go. I really like adding sweetcorn to cornbread, especially when the recipe doesn't call for much sweetener. - 17 Nov 2012
Just made this tonight and hubby and I really enjoyed it. Tasted kind of like dumplings! A nice accompaniment instead of bread. - 20 May 2013
