Sweet Corn Bread

Sweet Corn Bread

I really love this sweet corn bread. I actually grew with the smell and taste of this delicious bread. My grandma used to make this on her outside oven. From childhood turned to be one of my favorite sweet treats. After so many years I still love it. 

This bread is sweet rich and tasty, the caramelized sugar on top makes it worth trying it. Served warm along a cup of milk or yogurt makes a great choice for breakfast. There is no doubt about that.

I decided to make this as soon as I saw the words "caramelized sugar." Who can beat that?

I love corn bread. I love the American style and the sweeter Mexican version called pastel de elote or panque de elote. I like the carmelized topping in your recipe. I think I'll throw in a few fresh sweet corn kernals too. I really like the recipes you offer and congrats on making Top 9 so often.

Your corn bread looks delicious. I think it's really easy to sometimes mess up such "basic" recipes, but yours definitely looks like a success!

he intentado hacer la receta y me subió mucho pero cuando la saque del horno se me bajo y quedo muy baja,no se ¿porque pudo ser?

I am not sure I understood well, google translate didn't help too much. If the cake has grown well in the oven and after you took it out reduced, it means it needed more flour, more cornmeal. If the consistency of batter is too runny you may need to add more cornmeal or semolina flour.

Hi, I made your sweet corn bread yesterday. But, it turned out like a yogurt pudding....not at all like your photos. Sorry to ask you, is the quantity of yogurt correct (500 grs)? I love your recipes, I've already made several, all very good and simple. regards. Ana
