My Mami has never had much of a sweet tooth. She will indulge in a few buñelos over the Christmas Holidays or maybe a slice of cake on birthdays. She prefers savory over sweet when it comes to after dinner treats.
With Mother’s Day approaching I thought why not take one of her favorite foods—cornbread—and sweeten it up, just a touch. A bit of sugar, a dash of cinnamon and this corn cake is perfectly fine on its own, but it’s Mother’s Day and we must celebrate with embellishments. Fresh berries and a dollop of whipped cream take this cake over the top. Hey, it’s her day she deserves it.
