    winkki's Note:

    A different twist on corn bread, this is sweet and very moist. It's been a favorite with hubby and the kids around here for years. If you dice the apples very finely, they almost disappear into the batter; leave them larger for chunks of fruity flavor. This is also good with cinnamon mixed into the batter (I usually do that more for a breakfast/brunch than dinner). Originally submitted by Nancy Kirkland in a church cookbook from Maryland.

    1. 1
      Mix dry ingredients; set aside.
    2. 2
      In another bowl, combine milk, egg, and shortening (you may want to warm the milk slightly to keep the shortening from clumping back up, but not too much or you'll cook the egg).
    3. 3
      Add cornmeal mixture to wet ingredients.
    4. 4
      Add apple and stir gently; batter will be very thick.
    5. 5
      Pour into greased 9x9" pan and bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes.
    6. 6
      (To make sure it cooks through in the middle, since it is a heavier-than-usual cornbread batter, you may want to check about 20 min-- if the center still seems uncooked, cover with foil to prevent overbrowning and increase cook time as needed).

      I'm going to make this today. I love to make cornbread, and like to add a bit of something different to it, especially fruit. My cornbread does double-duty, as I also warm it up and feed it to my big harlequin macaw and she thinks it's a special treat.... I know it's a hit when she says "mmmmmmm....good!" Next to pumkin pie, cornbread is her favorite!

      Very moist and nicely sweet! I loved the hint of apples. I used a large Jonagold apple for this. I love sweet cornbread and this is even one step better. Thanx for posting!

      I made this for breakfast this morning and it was simply delicious! It is quick to whip up and a great cornbread. I loved the texture and the addition of a nice firm coarsely chopped McIntosh apple and about 1 T. cinnamon sent it to another level for me! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Winkki. It is very much appreciated by this cornbread lover! Linda
