I usually just use the cornbread recipe in my cookbook, and it's not bad, but the other day I went searching online for a 'buttermilk' cornbread recipe, because I had some soured milk I wanted to use. I used some for waffles, and I needed a recipe to use the rest.
My husband said he liked this cornbread better than the usual cornbread, so I definitely need to keep this recipe.
Tonight I thought I'd try something a bit different and made this Southern Cornbread recipe.
I used 1-1/2 cups cornmeal and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. I also used the egg and the 2 Tablespoons sugar. I liked it, especially in my soup. It is definitely not sweet, so I'm sure my husband will still prefer the other recipe. It's also quite crumbly - good when you're putting it in soup, but not so great if you just want to eat cornbread with butter. Now, cornbread with butter and molasses that you eat with a fork - it works quite well for that.
How do you like your cornbread? Sweet or not?
