Sweet ‘n’ hot tips

If you like a very sweet corn bread, increase the sugar to 1/2 cup (125 mL). For extra fire, stir in 114 mL can drained diced green chilies or 1/2 tsp hot red pepper flakes along with the buttermilk. For interesting texture, stir in 1/2 cup (125 mL) frozen or drained canned corn kernels just before turning batter into the pan.
