Creamed Corn Is Alton Brown's Favorite Cornbread Addition
For homemade cornbread that's rich, moist, and flavorful, turn to Alton Brown's recipe, who likes to incorporate creamed corn into his cornbread.
Per his website, Brown "strongly recommends" using homemade creamed corn for this recipe to ensure that the cornbread is rich and flavorful with a moist, tender crumb.
Brown starts with his "Better-Than-Granny's" creamed corn recipe which incorporates rosemary and turmeric for a savory herbaceous flavor, but you can use any recipe you prefer.
Cornmeal, low-fat buttermilk, eggs, baking soda, and sugar round out the recipe. Add the creamed corn to the other ingredients and bake at 425 degrees F for 20 minutes.
