Georgia Cornbread Cake

Millie Johnson


I learned how to make this wonderfully delightful little Georgia cornbread 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.

Definitely not cornbread, but this cake is delicious. Once baked, a nice crust forms on the outside that's flaky but inside the cake's tender and moist. The texture reminds us of an extra chewy brownie. Each bite is full of pecans. This makes an easy dessert or enjoy as an afternoon snack with coffee. You probably have the ingredients in your kitchen already. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
