How do you like your cornbread? Please say sweet! Please say sweet!
Slightly sweetened cornbread is what I was raised on and definitely what I prefer. The title of this cornbread recipe says it all! Sweet & Simple! I bet my grandma made it for us a million times growing up and it’s the only cornbread my mom makes to this day. It’s definitely a family favorite!
We love eating it with barbeque, beans, spicy chili, hearty stews, or just by itself with a pat of butter.
And if you happen to have any left over, you’ve gotta make this amazing Cornbread Salad recipe that this cornbread goes perfectly in.
