Tips and warnings

  • The corn bread batter can also be turned into corn cakes. Form the mixture into a thin cake, and fry it on a hot, oiled griddle.
  • If you don't have corn flour, whole wheat flour can be substituted. However, don't attempt to substitute white flour.
  • Add 2 tbsp. sun dried tomato pesto to the batter to make savory Italian corn bread.
  • Whole milk can be substituted for buttermilk.
