My favorite cornbread!!

The humidity is finally starting to break here in South Florida, and I find I’m getting increasingly excited about meals like this one. What’s not to love about a bowl of hearty beef chili and sweet, melt in your mouth cornbread? This cornbread and I go way back, and I was thrilled when I found a recipe to recreate my favorite cornbread at home.

Back as a kid I didn’t realize there were different types of cornbread, only that some I preferred more than others. As I got older I realized the common denominator among the cornbread I liked was sugar. I know there are many die-hard southern cornbread fans that don’t like their cornbread sweet and dessert-like, but I can’t imagine my cornbread any other way. I’m the same way with coleslaw….I like it sweet, of course!

Back in the early 2000’s as a new mom, when cooking was really starting to “come together” for me, I found this recipe online for Marie Callender’s famous golden cornbread. It’s SO good, and I’m happy to share it with other sweet cornbread fans! Which type do you prefer?

    Actually, I am a die-hard southern cornbread fan, but I love my cornbread sweet. It has to have sugar in it for me to love it. Although I still enjoy the non-sweet versions, I LOVE my cornbread sweet.

    This recipe sounds awesome!

  5. Uh-uh. No sugar in the cornbread, Denise! I make many different kinds of cornbread and there’s never a grain of sugar in sight. Of course, that’s just my taste – everybody enjoys things differently 🙂

    I like my cornbread a little sweet. I use about the same recipe you’ve listed about but I fry my in a skillet. Plop in a pancake sized dollop let it sizzle until the ends crisp and the middle starts bubbling and getting a little dry. Flip it. Then, flop it on a paper bag to drain. Sooooo good. My husband loves that corn bread!
