I'm curious what corn bread is supposed to taste like? I'm not talking about the Jiffy stuff, but the stuff you make when you use corn meal. I use Albers white corn meal to make my corn bread, I follow the instructions on the box and it turns out really yummy.
It's kinda sweet, moist and cake like, and not too dry.
But I noticed, when go out to restaurants, cornbread never tastes like the stuff from the Albers box. Why is this? Are there different types of corn bread? When I go out, I usually get stuff that is dryer and harder, with a dry consistency.
p.s. I'm referring to the plain corn bread, no added stuff (ie scallions, bacon, etc.)
