From America's Test Kitchen. I've had some cornbread that is almost cake-like and sweet. If that is what you're looking for, this is not it. This does have a very good, somewhat coarse texture. Perfect served up with your favorite chili! :) They recommended baking this in a cast-iron skillet, but I had very good results usimg a 9-inch round cake pan.

The texture of this cornbread is wonderfully tender and moist. The addition of the chopped corn is very nice. I used stone ground corn meal and baked it in a round cake pan. It rose very nicely and was perfectly golden brown after 20 minutes. Thanks for sharing, Beth.
