Author Notes: When you need a change from all the "sweet" Fair goodness, this is an excellent, fresh out of the oven treat. It is moist, rich and spicy with cream & tequila poured into the center of the corn batter to form a custard filling that will bake right in the middle...no need for butter or syrup with this cornbread!lapadia
