Custard Filled Cornbread

This is an amazing corn bread which bakes a creamy, barely set custard layer of filling in the center. If you like your cornbread a touch on the sweeter side, please don't hesitate to add a touch more sugar. That's the way we like it best ; ) I discovered this recipe in The Best of Virginia Farms Cookbook. I hope you will enjoy it!

This is good cornbread! However, my hubby and I thought the custard needed to be a little sweeter so I will try adding some sugar to the whipping cream next time. We also thought putting berries on top of each serving (like strawberry shortcake) would be good.
