It is possible to make traditional cornbread recipes sweeter. Instead of adding standard white sugar, try corn syrup, light brown sugar, or honey. In addition to giving the bread a sweeter taste, it also creates a moist texture.
Cornbread is a low-fat food, especially compared to many other baked goods. Just a slight increase in the fat content of a standard cornbread recipe can add a great deal of moisture. Adding a single egg yolk or a third cup of vegetable oil or melted butter is enough to moisten the bread without making the batter to thin.
In addition to sweeteners, oil, butter, and eggs, there are other ingredients that add moisture to the recipe. Creamed corn creates moisture and adds a richer flavor to the bread. Likewise, you can make a vegetable cornbread by shredding zucchini, eggplant, or peppers and adding them to the mix. Finally, add a quarter cup of heavy cream, sour cream, or plain yogurt to the mix. If you are adding a combination of moistening ingredients, reduce the amount of liquid added. For instance, a cup of creamed corn and a quarter cup of cream results in a moist bread that holds it shape.
If you prefer not to add anything to moisten your cornbread, you can alter the preparation to create moisture. Corn meal absorbs moisture, so the longer it sits before baking, the more moist the final product. Allow the batter to sit for up to 30 and then bake as recommended.
