How to Make Southern Cornbread from Scratch

Happy Thursday Y’all!

Cornbread is synonymous with the South. When you think of the South, you think of delicious and moist cornbread. We eat cornbread all year round,  and when the weather begins to cool down.  You can find us eating a big ole bowl of soup or beans with our cornbread. It literally goes with everything, from collard greens to tomatoes, rice, and sausage to a delectable roast during a Sunday dinner with family and friends. All three of these recipes can be found here, here, and here.

However, not all cornbread is created equal. For years, I had used Jiffy sometimes it turned out well. Other times you could tell that it came straight from a box. After years of using Jiffy, I decided it was time to create my own mouthwatering and moist cornbread. So let’s get cooking y’all, because this recipe is amazing.

 As always we always need a list of ingredients before we get started.
