    I was just having some cornbread and I realized I actually like it a bit sweet, but just wondering, do you guys prefer your cornbread sweet or savory? I've always liked my cornbread slightly sweet. But not too sweet. The reason for that is because if I've already finished the rest of my food then I can still eat the cornbread like a little dessert on the side (I don't usually have dessert with supper or lunch, and rather have maybe something like a cookie before bed).

    But if I need to eat it with other savory foods, then it automatically turns into a bun because there isn't that much sugar, so enough to taste but not to overpower other foods. I've included a poll if you'd rather not post.. :)

    I agree, a drizzle of honey and a dab of butter always makes cornbread to die for.

    I think I have had bread made of corn before, but it didn't look anything like the one in the photo.
    It might be one of those things where in the Americas is known as something and in other places is known with its proper name.
    :p
    Jokes aside, if I want a sweet bread I will either have a cake, or spread something sweet on a slice of bread. For example butter and sugar, or butter and honey, or honey, or various chocolate/praline spreads, or marmalade or something.

    The closest experience I have had with this cornbread of yours is wanting to try one after seeing it in the movie The Green Mile. It was a good break from all the crying.

    The opening Pic looks more like a Sponge Cake than bread.... o_O

    Here is me thinking that Wagon Wheels are a biscuit Based snack with a Marshmallow filling... The pic is with the Jam alternative.

    Moon Cakes looks much more like a cake based shack with a Marshmallow filling.. Again there can be alternatives..

    i don't seen the alternative name making it the same snack...

    For me it's savoury all the way. Sometimes we make it with a bit of a cheese, although I prefer the plain variant.

    I'm not a cornbread eater. I prefer good old-fashioned biscuits...an English Muffin...and more often than not, Raisin Toast with Apple Butter on it.

    that crumb on that cake looks far to open to be machine manufactured that looks like someone's homemade attempt .

    That's what cornbread generally looks like machine made or home made or from a mix you buy, it looks like a sponge cake:
