I am fond of eating muffins in various flavors and most especially, I like corn muffin. Having heard about cornbread bibingka of The Park's Finest in Los Angeles, California being popular, I wonder how a cornbread is being made.

Well, cornbread is popular in the America, especially in Southern United States. How come it is being called cornbread where it actually uses baking powder as leavening agent? I may be used to knowing that breads are typically made with yeast in adding volume. But anyway, that may be there are also called banana bread and so on and so forth.
