Whole Kernel Corn Cornbread

True corn lovers are sure to gobble up this cornbread made with whole corn kernels rather than ground cornmeal alone.  The whole corn is blended with eggs, milk, honey, butter, flour, and cornmeal for a truly authentic cornbread batter that bakes to a beautiful golden brown.
