This recipe is different from my regular cornbread recipe because it has some sugar in it. I am not usually a fan of sweeter cornbreads, but I loved this recipe! It wasn't super sweet, maybe the bacon helped cut down on the sweetness. OMG! YUM! This recipe makes a big pan of cornbread, but it is easy to half if you don't need to serve a crowd. The cooking time stays the same.
