Tim's Story

This is the only cornbread, "corn cake" recipe that we used at the restaurant. Due to the large amount of portions needed when we made this, we would increase the recipe and make in a hotel pan.


1 c
all purpose flour
1 c
yellow cornmeal
1/4 c
1 tsp
baking soda
2 tsp
cream of tartar
3/4 tsp
1 c
sour cream
1/4 c
4 Tbsp
butter, melted

Bake 20 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes, cut and enjoy!

    I will have to try this recipe Tim, it really sounds moist and tasty. It is somewhat similiar to mine, except you use Sour Cream, and I use Buttermilk. I am sure it is very good, I use sour cream in cakes but have never used it in Corn Bread. Butter is ALWAYS GOOD IN ANY RECIPE. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I will keep you posted when I make it. I have saved the recipe for my NEXT coiled bound booklet. Coiled Bound Favorite Recipes Thanks so much for posting.
