Whole Foods Cornbread?

Klunco | Feb 27, 2011 06:54 PM

Recently been addicted to the WF cornbread. It's definitely northern style "sweet" cornbread but I haven't been able to find a recipe that comes close. I've tried about six different ones and none have the same flavor. It's crumbly, sweet but not too sweet, and just tastes like perfect cornbread to this New Englander.

Several recipes I've tried used only a tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of sugar and were too bland, but then I tried a recipe with a whole stick of butter and 2/3's cup sugar and it was disgustingly sweet, maybe a good cake but horrible as a savory bread. Tried the Cook's "Golden Northern Cornbread" and it seemed flat, tried chow's and it was buttery but not corny or sweet. How can I get moist and sweet but balanced by savory?

Anyone tried the WF cornbread and know what I'm talking about? Does anyone know the recipe or have a good approximation?
