Rich Corn Cake

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Beans have been simmering most of the day, the ham bone has been removed to cool so that the meat can be added back to the Beanpot. That means it is time to put the cornbread in the oven. We have a good cornbread that is made here, but since I wanted to share with Cookbook Sundays @ Couscous & Consciousness I took a look in my favorite cookbook, The Fanny Farmer Cookbook for another great cornbread to share. This is a richer cornbread made with sour cream for moisture, but less sweet using only half as much sugar.

Rich Corn Cake, another great recipe form Fannie Farmer.
