Searching for a certain Sweet Corn Bread Recipe
Does anyone have the recipe to the sweet corn bread that is sold predominately in the southern Whole Food stores in Florida (Fort Lauderdale on US1)? It is more a cake than it is cornbread but it is by far the best I have ever had. I have tried to replicate the recipe several times so far but no luck.
I tried the recipe by Thndersnow this weekend. It was very good and is actually the closest one yet. I'm planning on trying Antilopes recipe this week. I'll be traveling to Fort Lauderdale in early May. On the itinerary is a stop at Whole Foods on Route 1 where I hope the baker will be present for an interrogation hehe. Thank you for all the responses.
Not from Whole Foods, but I tried out several cornbread recipes to find a cake-like one and this is the best one I found. I was making habanero cornbread cupcakes, so needed the cake-like consistency but still a cornbread taste.
1 cup cornmeal
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/3 cups white sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons honey
4 eggs, beaten
2 1/2 cups whole milk
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
2. Stir together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Pour in the vegetable oil, melted butter, honey, beaten eggs, and milk, and stir just to moisten.
3. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, until the top of the cornbread starts to brown and show cracks.
