Help with my cornbread recipe, please!

Violatp | Nov 28, 201104:29 PM

I tried a new cornbread recipe for t-day that I liked very much, taste-wise, but would love to tweak to make it a bit richer and moister. BUT, I don't want it to be crumbly, which is what I fear would happen if I just, say, added more butter.

- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup melted and cooled butter
- salt and pepper (I forget the actual amounts of these)

Maybe add some creamed corn???

Oh, and they had the very slightest baking powder aftertaste. Can I reduce the baking powder w/o affecting the rise?

Thank you so much!
