All about this Homemade Cornbread Recipe

This homemade cornbread comes together so quickly and easily.  In less than an hour, you will have a delicious pan of cornbread and there is no need for any box mix.  We’re not against a box mix but after you make homemade cornbread and find how easy and yummy, it’s really a no brainer.     

The best way to make cornbread is in a cast iron skillet.  There is just no comparison of the delicious crust that develops when you bake in a cast iron pan or baking dish.  All that is needed is to melt butter, coconut oil, or another oil in the pan before you put your batter in the pan.    

Not only can cornbread go with your favorite chili or soup but it can also be warmed up for breakfast or dessert.  Some people even have milk and cornbread which is cornbread that you cover with milk and eat.  One of our favorite uses for cornbread is to use it to make cornbread dressing or stuffing.  It hands down makes the yummiest dressing to go with your turkey or favorite meal.  If you like cornbread, you will find there is not really any bad way to make or have it.  Warm cornbread with butter, honey or maple syrup is where it is at!
