I got this delicious recipe from a cookbook, but didn't keep its name... This is what we'd call in Brazil a "Bolo de Milho" or corn cake, that we'd eat with a nice hot cup of black coffee. According to the recipe: "Corn pone is different from cornbread as it has the texture of pound cake and is slightly sweeter and less crumbly than cornbread."
