{the best corn bread ever}

Since I've been sick all week, my diet has mainly consisted of soup, juice, and water. But now that I am finally feeling a little better, I'm starting to crave normal food- especially Z'Tejas Famous Corn Bread! Z'Tejas is a southwestern restaurant in Salt Lake and it's delicious! Well, my friends, today I found the recipe, and I feel the need to personally thank Fox 13 for posting this scrumptious recipe online, so that I may make this bread any ol' time I want!

1 1/2 cups corn meal
1 1/2 cups flour
1/3 cups plus 1 Tbs. sugar

1/3 cups plus 1 Tbs. cream corn
1/3 cups plus 1 Tbs. frozen corn
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
3 eggs
1/3 cups plus 1 Tbs. butter, melted
1/4 tsp. salt

Mix all dry ingredients together.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk all wet ingredients together.
