Corn bread in various ways

My cousin are also one of those coincidental cooks – they just do it,’cause they can kinda thing. On Sunday night at church, she whispered in my ear: “I have an easy recipe for you…” Well, that got my attention. I got the old pen out and jotted it down in a flash and while I was writing, I knew I’m gonna love this one….. One of those easy-add-your-own-touch recipes!
So I will give you the basic…

Corn Bread

Beat 3 eggs and 3/4 cups sugar (I will make this less next time – it is a bit sweet for my liking.
Add 3 TBS melted butter and beat some more.

Sift 1 cup cake flour, 1 cup corn flour and 2 tsp baking powder and add to the egg mixture. Now add 1 tin creamed sweet corn.
I also added 125ml chopped chives
a few chopped sun dried tomatoes
Bake for 40-45 minutes.

This bread is best eaten fresh from the oven, just with butter. I served it as a light supper with some wild rocket, a few slices of tomato and a lightly poached egg. Yum!

    I luv cornbread, straddling sweet & savory and it makes for a good stuffing too!

    sylvie – the cornbread was delicious,yes!

    ginny – I love making poached eggs the proper way – it is fun seeing the egg swirling around in the water and eventually turning opague.

    glamah – my gran left us all an amazing cooking legacy.

    peter – wow, I have never thought of that.

    nikki – I also have a few carb friends of which potatoes are the best.

    kevin – I love sun dried tomatoes, they add such a beautiful flavor.

    That corn bread with butter is just insane! Nina you are a tease!

    If your cousin keeps coming up with great recipes that are short in ingredients and long in delicious – take a journal next time.

    my french kitchen – I also loved it, but next time I will most ptobably use different flavors eg. Bacon, onion …

    matt – It is so quick to make, you can have it in no time.

    sylvia – I hope they finish soon, I know how disruptive that can be.

    proud italian cook – oh, so you liked it?

    noble pig – sorry!!!

    wow, a poached egg on cornbread that does sound like a great combination!

  16. Emiline 29 May 2008 at 11:40 am #

    Your bread looks sooo good. I love bread. I eat it everyday.

  17. Nina's Kitchen (Nina Timm) 29 May 2008 at 4:28 pm #

    kat – a poached egg on everything is a good idea….

    emiline – that’s my downfall too.

  18. Bellini Valli 29 May 2008 at 11:46 pm #

    This would be so good with a little melted butter Nina. I have been looking for a cornbread recipe and here we are:D

    Nina- are you sure you’re not a Texan at heart? Tis cornbread looks fantastic and I am so the sucker for poached eggs. I love eggs benedict in an almost unhealthy way.

    I love making sweet corn bread and sometimes toss in golden corn and jalapenos. It’s excellent with black eyed pea soup or black beans.

    i’ve honestly never seen cornbread so beautiful before!

  21. Jeanne 4 June 2008 at 2:45 pm #

    Oh yes, I am soooo making this! Although I can already see the peppadews being substituted for the tomatoes… I love this kind of recipe, passed on by a colleague or friend. These are the recipes that find their way into my heart.
