  • In another bowl combine wet ingredients, whisk well.
  • Add wet to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour into prepared pan.
  • Let rest for 5 minutes before baking.

    I was born and raised in the south but unlike most southerners, I like my cornbread sweet. Give me a pan of sweet cornbread and a mess of collards and I'm one happy country girl. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing. :)

    Can use buttermilk powder as a sub for buttermilk. Make sure to add the required liquid.

    This is some seriously wonderful cornbread! Sweet and fluffy! I made it exactly as written and I did the toothpick thing at 25 minutes and it was perfect. Added my picture, too. More here

    I'm going to make this now for dinner with pork steaks. This sounds wonderful! Will update.

    UPDATE: This was a hit last night! Thank you for such a great recipe! I did use self rising cornmeal instead of adding the baking powder and salt. I also baked it in a cast iron pan. It took about 20 min at 400*. The nephews love the "Yankee Cornbread"!

    This cornbread was delicious!!! It rose beautifully in the oven, and was the perfect sweetness. I drizzled a little honey over it before baking to make sure it would be sweet enough, since we eat our cornbread very sweet, but it was un-needed. I served this with black bean chili, and I think this is my new go to cornbread recipe!

    Oh, I didn't know this recipe was posted to the site! This is VERY good and VERY easy! I made this today. The only changes I made was to use 1/2 the sugar and I only used 1 Tbls. of baking powder. I used milk instead of buttermilk. I baked it in a buttered bread pan for about 35 minutes. This is the cornbread recipe I will use from now on!

    Great recipe! I agree with "tnacndn" as the less sweet version of cornbread is Southern. I happen to be a cornbread fan though, so sweet or not so sweet, either way is just fine with me. The one thing I can't stand in cornbread is corn niblets tossed in :-( Thanks for sharing.

    I'm not a particularly large fan of cornbread. I make it for mum. She likes it sweet. I tried the honey recipe noted above and she liked that too. Putting a square of it under a ladle full or two of chili to get rid of a dutch oven full of chili.

    Sweet cornbread is a Northern thing. As a born and bred Southerner I only made cornbread one time with sugar in it and that was at the request for this paralized lady I worked for.LOL
    This does sound like it is good though.

    I found a honey cornbread recipe on this site that is very close to this one. Think I'll try it. Had to look under "breads" sub-cat "vegetable breads" to find it. It does not come up under a search for cornbread.

    I make this, too! I use self-rising cornmeal and flour, and less sugar, but I'm sure I started with the way you have it. Good stuff!

    Almost like what I make, except I use Splenda instead of sugar due to hubby's diabetes. It's good, and I drizzle honey all over my cornbread.
