This has to be my most made recipe here at home. We love our corncake, that's for sure. I call it corncake but it's cornbread to others, or cornpone in some parts of the country.
I've posted many a pic of our corncakes on instagram, and always get asked for the recipe (which was posted here but disappeared when I switched site hosts). I've detailed the classic buttery plain version and a bunch of other options we love both sweet and savory. Baked in a screaming hot skillet will give the corncake a beautiful crunchy crust, and baked as muffins will make easy travel friendly/school lunch friendly treats. Have fun creating your own flavor combos too. Tag me on instagram (@fareisle) so I can see your creations!
