So, not so long ago (maybe a year), Benjamin took me on a nice date to a high class restaraunt here in Phoenix that rotates around the top of this tower while you dine.  AMAZING!  Not to mention the AMAZING waitress we had!  She was just a doll!  Worked hard and sought out ways to make our night more pleasant.  She just went the extra mile!  Such a neat place!  Anyway, while dining in this place, they served us Cornbread.  Not a huge fan of Cornbread myself, I offered my hubby my piece, but he MADE me try a bite at least.  Needless to say, he never got my piece! :)  It was AMAZING!  And I ate every last bite! :)  He teasingly asked our waitress if he could have just one more piece of cornbread and she obliged, and with it, she brought out a card that had the printed recipe!!!  The actual recipe this restaraunt uses!  Oh, were we happy! :)  I've made it a few times since we ate there and every time it's the same, incredibly addicting!  So, I'm sharing it now with you!

1 lb (4 sticks) butter
2 c sugar
2 c cornmeal
8 eggs
28 ounces cream corn (see recipe below)
3 c flour
2 T baking powder
2 T salt
6 oz cheddar cheese

Cream the butter, sugar and cornmeal. Add eggs one at a time -- mix until incorporated. Add cream corn (see recipe below) and mix until incorporated. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until incorporated. Add cheese, mix. Grease pans.  Preheat oven to 300. Bake about 1 hr until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. 

This recipe yeilds either 1 - 9x13; or 2 - 9x9; or 4 - large loaf pans. 

Note:  This can also be frozen UNBAKED, and baked the day of serving.  See pictures. 

Cream Corn

2 (10 ounce) packages frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 c heavy cream
1 t salt
2 T sugar
1/4 t pepper
2 Tbutter

In a skillet over medium heat, combine the corn, cream, salt, sugar, pepper and butter. Whisk together the milk and flour, and stir into the corn mixture. Cook stirring over medium heat until the mixture is thickened, and corn is cooked through. Remove from heat, and stir in the Parmesan cheese until melted. Serve hot or use for recipe.
