How Are Cornbread And Cornbread Pudding Different?

cornbread pudding

While cornbread has a cake-like texture, corn pudding is lighter with a soufflé-like consistency. Both are delicious, but corn pudding tends to be richer in flavor.

Why Is It Named Cornbread?

The name “cornbread” originates from the Algonquin word “apan,” meaning “baked.” It evolved from the Narragansett word “nokechick,” which transformed into “no-cake” and then “hoe-cake.” Due to its portability, cornbread was also referred to as “journey cake,” eventually leading to the name “Johnny cake.”

What Is The Taste Of Cornbread?

Cornbread offers a slight, distinctive corn flavor. Its crispy, golden crust gives way to a fluffy, inviting texture that keeps you reaching for another bite.
