Cornbread Recipe

Cornbread was always hit or miss for me.  It was either too “corny” or too “cakey” for my liking.  Until I found this recipe.  Sweet and tender chunks of bread, perfect for pairing with your favorite savory meals.  I love it with ribs, barbeque, or chili.

If I am being honest though, cornbread isn’t really all that difficult to make.  At the end of the day, it all comes down to your flavor preferences.  Some people like it a little more chunky.  I tend to prefer mine to taste like sweet bread and even more so if you drop a dollop of butter on top.  *queue drool sequence*
