Evaporated Milk Is The Secret To Super Rich Cornbread
To inject a subtle sweetness into your moist, tender cornbread, swap fresh milk for evaporated milk. Its fat content will boost the flavor and texture, creating a creamy mouthfeel.
To make the swap, use the evaporated milk just as you would regular milk, and whisk the wet ingredients together until smooth before folding them into the dry ingredients.
To balance out the richness of the evaporated milk, sprinkle a pinch of cayenne pepper into your mixed ingredients. Once out of the oven, garnish it with flaky sea salt crumbles.
