  • large eggs
  • 1 1/2  creamed corn canned
  • 1 1/2  sour cream
  • 3/4  sunflower oil or olive oil
  • 1 1/2  cornmeal self-rising
  • tbsp.  flour all-purpose
  • 3/4  tsp.  salt
  • 1/2  tsp.  baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. hot chilies optional finely chopped
  • tbsp.  butter melted
  • non-stick cooking spray


  • Blanched Almonds
  • Salted Butter
  • 1/2  Waxing Kara Honey
  • 1/2  Lime
  • pinch  Sea Salt



  • Preheat the oven to 425°F (218°C).This would probably be 375°F Convection Oven
  • Beat the eggs slightly in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in the creamed corn, sour cream, and oil. Add the cornbread mix, flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir to blend well. Spray a 9-inch skillet with an ovenproof handle with nonstick cooking spray (see Note in #4). Pour in the batter.
  • Place the skillet on the burner on medium high heat for 1 minute. Then place on a shelf in the upper third of the oven. Turn the oven down to 375°F (191°C) and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Slide under the broiler about 4 inches from the flame for 45 seconds to a minute to brown the top. Watch carefully. Brush the top with melted butter for a shiny finish.
  • Note: Instead of a skillet, spray a 9-inch round cake pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the batter into the pan and place on a shelf in the upper third of the oven. Turn the oven down to 375°F (191°C) and bake for 40 minutes. Brown under the broiler as above and brush with melted butter.


  • In Food processor puree almonds and juice of lime. Add Honey and Butter and whip till fully incorporated. Spread on warm Cornbread.
