Southern Cornbread

If you like your cornbread on the sweeter side, then THIS Southern Cornbread recipe for you! You'll want to serve it with everything!

Southern Cornbread

There are a few recipes that I feel everyone should have. This Southern Cornbread recipe is one of them! It goes with so many things, is easy to whip up, and it is amazeballs.

My husband loves the leftovers - and often claims plenty for himself! 😉 Unlike many cornbread recipes, this one is not gritty. I'm not a big fan of gritty cornbread. This recipe produces a thick, slightly cake-like, cornbread that is to die for!

Southern Cornbread

Everyone has their quirks. When it comes to brownies or cornbread, I'm an edge-type of person (corners preferably) - my husband like the middles. I'm not suggesting that's the secret to a happy marriage, but it sure helps. 😊 No matter if you prefer middles or edges, this cornbread is so simple to whip up. Slather on some butter, maybe a drizzle of honey .... mmmm hmmmm and take a big ol' bite!

  8. Cakes and brownies, give me the middle. Cornbread give me the corner(s) or else. lol Yummy recipe.

  9. No true southerner would EVER call this recipe, 'southern cornbread'. Cornbread is made with cornmeal & buttermilk. It's supposed to be gritty, and dense, not sweet and fluffy like cake. This label on this recipe is truly an affront to my Southern heritage. Real cornbread is savory, not sweet. Even those boxed corn muffin mixes are sweet.... but notice they aren't called cornbread. Why? Because it isn't, & neither is this corn cake that you are trying to claim as "Real Southern Cirnbread".


I love reading your comments. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and respond. :)
