The debate over whether sweet or salty cornbread is the way to go rolls on. Some Southerners claim that sweet cornbread is Yankee-style. Others swear they grew up eating it every week. It’s probably just a matter of taste. At the newly established Craves Soul Food, their sweet and fluffy yellow cornbread is one of several homemade breads available, alongside biscuits, blueberry muffins, banana nut bread, and other specialties. Sugary and moist, the cornbread is practically a dessert, like a fresh slice of pound cake — perfect for the end of a salty lunch of fried pork chops or shrimp purloo rice.
