Corn Souffle or Spoonbread recipes

Can anyone share their tried and tested Corn spoonbread or souffle recipe.

I would like to make a corn side dish this Thanksgiving in place of sweet potatoes and I would love to get some ideas. I am interested in a sweeter version of this not a spicy southwestern kind of version.

Thanks in advance

This is one of Emerils that is really fabulous

Apple and Pecan Spoonbread Recipe
courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2000

1/2 teaspoon plus 3 tablespoons butter
1 cup finely chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped celery
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup chopped pecan pieces
2 cups diced cooking apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled
4 large eggs, separated
3 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
1.Grease a 2-quart rectangle glass dish (8 by 11 1/2 by 2 inches) with 1 teaspoon of the butter.
2.In a large saute pan, over medium heat, melt the remaining 3 tablespoons of the butter. Add the onions and celery. Season with salt and pepper. Saute until the vegetables are softened, about 4 minutes.
3.Add the pecans and continue to saute for 1 minute. Add the apples. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to saute for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool completely.
4.In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks and cream together. Add the cornmeal and whisk until smooth.
5.Stir the apple mixture and cheese into the cornmeal mixture. Mix until incorporated.
6.In another large mixing bowl, whip the egg whites with an electric mixer until very stiff and peaks form, then fold into the apple batter.
7.Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until it sets, about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Spoon onto serving plates and garnish with parsley.

For spoonbread, I am a HUGE fan of the recipe Elf posted in the Dine With Us section. Here it is! And several of us have tried it with great success!
