Corn bread was a favorite in our family when I was growing up. My parents liked it slightly sweet, thus the creamed corn and sugar. With all the extra ingredients, this recipe comes out moist and has a texture more like a pound cake than the traditional corn breads. Mom served it with fresh green beans, chili, and a multitude of other dishes.
