The best easy cornbread recipe is quick & easy to make and turns out golden and moist every time. A must have for summer BBQs to winter comfort food meals.
Originally published Jan 2015
Our family has traveled extensively in the southern states and have sampled cornbread in practically every state south of the Mason Dixon line. Although we’ve had many versions from jalapeno to cheddar and onion, we mostly make good old plain cornbread.
Because it’s so quick and easy to make, you really can enjoy it with so many family meals. Nothing says homemade comfort like something warm from the oven and if you make a large batch you can even freeze the leftovers.
Try using it in Apple Pecan Stuffing to go with a Sunday roast chicken dinner.
