Sweet Cornbread Is Cake Recipe
Ask any Southerner, and they'll have an opinion on what makes the perfect cornbread. As most folks can agree, however, sugar doesn't have a place in the traditional skillet recipe. This cornbread cake, which can be found at Angeline New Orleans under Chef Alex Harrell, gives a humorous nod to the classic, titled "Sweet Cornbread Is Cake." Made with leftover dried and crumbled cornbread, this Southern dessert is a fluffy cake ready for company when paired with fresh whipped cream and sliced strawberries. One unexpected ingredient that takes this sweet cornbread cake to the next level is orange blossom water. This scented water is made by infusing fresh orange blossoms in distilled water, which gives a trace of floral to the dessert. Although we don't often have leftover cornbread, this fluffy twist is soft and sweet enough to serve at a ladies luncheon – but we wouldn't blame you if you wanted to crumble it in some milk for breakfast.
