fresh corn cornbread

I had a couple of ears of fresh corn in my fridge leftover from last week’s veg box and they were just asking to be made into something special. It’s silly, but it really bugged me that the vast majority of cornbread recipes I looked at didn’t actually call for real, fresh corn. I took it upon myself to make a cornbread that incorporated a sweet golden corn puree , in addition to cornmeal. It turned out moist, slightly sweet and wholesome – with that signature soft crumb to it.
