This is the only cornbread that you need. It’s perfectly moist, sweet, and super delicious! Another classic Southern recipe for all the cornbread lovers out there. I’ve found this recipe online and thought I’d give it a try. I very seldom make cornbreads, it’s not that I don’t like them but I’ve never perfected how to make them. But this one is different, the instructions are very easy to follow, straightforward, and easy to understand. I’ve never made any modifications because this is perfect the way it is. The first time I followed the recipe I was skeptical because of many failed attempts from before. To my surprise, this buttermilk cornbread turned out great! That’s the first and I’ve never been so happy! I kept the recipe so whenever I feel like making cornbread I can, confidently. My family loves it, I love it, and this cornbread became my family’s favorite.
