Georgia Cornbread Cake

Millie Johnson


I learned how to make this wonderfully delightful little cake when I was cooking at a small restaurant many years ago. It is so addictive ! Don't let the name fool ya, it's not really cornbread, but a sweet and nutty cake that kind of resembles cornbread, hence the name. I serve it plain, but some people serve it with a caramel sauce drizzled over it.
