Sweet Buttermilk Cornbread is a deliciously moist quick bread, with a slightly sweet and tender crumb; serve warm dripping with butter and honey. The perfect winter side with chili, soups and stews or for a summer potluck or BBQ!
SWEET BUTTERMILK CORNBREAD
I love this sweet buttermilk cornbread, because while it has sugar, it’s not overly sweet and is just bursting with good corn-iness (yes, yes I am corny and proud of it, it’s a German thing). Nothing like what you will get out of a box! Toss that box out, this comes together so darn quick and the taste is far superior to any box mix.
PERFECT FOR A POTLUCK, BBQ OR WARM WINTER COMFORT FOOD
No buttermilk? No problem!
Measure 1 cup milk and stir 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice, let sit for about 5-10 minutes. Then use the amount needed.
Preheat oven to 400°F pouring batter into greased 9×13 baking pan.
Bake at 400°F for 22-27 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
I was a little impatient and served this up forgetting to take a picture of the finished product as a whole! Please take a moment to enjoy this series of mouthwatering photos…
…place a nice pat of butter on the warm corn bread and drizzle honey on top.
and maybe a smidge more honey…because can you really have too much honey and butter?! Nope!
Until it drips into a beautiful little golden, sticky puddle that you can dip your cornbread in to, at will.
