“This is my grandmother’s cornbread recipe and it’s the best – sweet and moist!”
My husband, normally is not impressed with cornbread, but this is light and fluffy and not as gritty. This cornbread is realy good.
GRANDMOTHER’S BUTTERMILK CORNBREAD RECIPE
When it gets REALLLLY cold here in sunny South Florida, I crave chili and corn bread. Let me tell you how Grandmother’s Buttermilk Cornbread makes an amazing stuffing at Thanksgiving. Since I baked this Thanksgiving, we didn’t have the amazing stuffing. I think I will make it “just because” so y’all could have the recipe!
A couple nights ago I had a sudden and overwhelming desire to stuff my face full of my Grandma’s cornbread. It’s hard to explain if you didn’t grow up on cornbread, but the drive to consume it can be a powerful force. So powerful, in fact, that I actually made two pans full at ten thirty at night just so I could eat a huge wedge warm from the oven and have an untouched pan to take to a friend’s house the next day.
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup white sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8 inch square pan.
Melt butter in large skillet. Remove from heat and stir in sugar. Quickly add eggs and beat until well blended. Combine buttermilk with baking soda and stir into mixture in pan. Stir in cornmeal, flour, and salt until well blended and few lumps remain. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
