Whole Wheat Sour Cream Cornbread

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by A Messy Cook

I found this recipe on the blog "Ponderings from Picket Fence Cottage" as part of a post on whole foods. It has a really unique flavor, not too "corny" and with a slight tang from the sour cream. The texture is excellent, tender yet firm. Hope you enjoy it.

WHAT A GREAT RECIPE!!! The thick consistency freaked me out, but I went with it anyway and it was WOW!!!! I did decrease temp to 400 and cook for 25 mins for more even cooking. This would be great spoon bread as well. I made a lot of changes: substituted 2t baking powder for the soda and tartar; brown Splenda Blend for the sugar; 1/4 c egg substitute for egg. All worked well. Also added 1/2 c chopped fresh jalapeno and 1/2 c chopped fresh onion. It was amazing. Chef might want to update directions to include adding the brown sugar for new cooks who want to try this recipe.
