Sweet Corn Bread


I created this as a form of yard appetizer however reality is, we’ve eaten this for lunch too. I wish to bulk it up a bit extra once we’re having this as a meal however there are a couple of very nice methods to jazz it up.

Cheese/Egg Topping: I resisted having the core recipe container both of these things however that is how I wish to make it a meal. Feta, added to the tomatoes, is superb. However, I favor a slice or two of fried halloumi or a poached egg.
