Corn bread


Hello hungry peoples,

I love a good corn bread, especially when it is served with some indulgent food like slow cooked ribs. At their worst corn bread can be stale and dry but the use of creamed corn in this recipe keeps everything moist and delicious. It does help to let the mixture sit for a few hours so the polenta softens. Lets get into it!
