Sweet - but with a bite

I know some people have strong opinions on what 'real' cornbread is. Sweet or not sweet - I don't care. As long as it's cornbread, it makes me happy. And I feel lucky that cornbread seems to lend itself easily to low-fat cooking - I have so many options to try.

Last night's recipe was cornbread that was sweet, but also had a sharp kick to it. I served it with leftover cream of tomato soup, and the two flavors complemented each other beautifully.

The only issue I had with this recipe was probably cooks' error. I'm still trying to get adjusted to the way my oven heats, and how high to set it, since according to my oven thermometer the settings are off. Last night the top browned, but it was still slightly gooshy inside. Didn't kill me though, so it's all good.

Good all around recipe - a probable repeat.
