What a surprise! Not a lick of corn in this recipe, but wonderful just the same! We all really enjoyed the sweet, nutty taste of the cake and the caramel-like syrup that goes over it. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Georgia Cornbread Dessert

Step-by-Step

  1. Caramel Sauce: In a saucepan add 2 tbs. butter, 1/3 cup karo syrup,1/2 cup brown sugar plus 2 tbs. Warm low to medium for 7 minutes. Remove from heat and add 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1/2 tsp vanilla.
  2. In separate bowl, mix 4 eggs, 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup white sugar. Add 1 1/2 self-rising flour, 1 cup vegetable oil, 2 tsp vanilla and 1 cup chopped nuts.
  3. Pour into two 8x8x2 inch pans and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 35 minutes or until brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream topped with carmel sauce.
  4. If you do not have self-rising flour, you can make your own by adding 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt to 1 cup flour. The Georgia Cornbread Dessert calls for 1 1/2 C. self-rising flour so it would be: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 3/4 tsp. salt. Hope that helps those of you who do not have self-rising flour.
