From mistakes come discoveriesAll this talk of cornbread finally broke me down and I made a quick pan this AM to eat with some veggie/bean soup.
When I pulled it out of the oven it looked a little different than usual but not a lot. I figured it was the oven or something else and put it over on a hot pad to cool for a few minutes. I've found it cuts better if it rests for 10 minutes.
As I went to cut it I realized there were 2 eggs sitting by the pan. I had forgotten to put the eggs in in my rush. I was dismayed--not enough ingredients to make a second pan!!
Oh, well, I thought, I'll try it and worse case give it to the squirrels and birds--they wouldn't care about the eggs.
To my amazement I can't tell much difference. Maybe a little less rich in flavor but no effect on texture or rising or moisture. A lower fat cornbread!
I will probably still put eggs in my cornbread but I did discover they have little effect on the end product and cornbread can be eggless! :)
