Soft and Sweet Cornbread: the Ultimate Dinner Bread
Ladies and Gentleman, boys and girls, might I direct your attention to the best cornbread you will ever eat in your life! No joke. I am not exaggerating. Not even a teensy weensy bit. You could almost call this corn cake. But since I do try to separate dessert from dinner, this is cornbread for all intents and purposes. :)
Seriously, this bread is melt-in-your-mouth tender and perfect to serve alongside your favorite stew, soup, or under taco meat. My 30 Minute Tomato Beef Stew almost begs to be eaten with it. My Enhanced Chicken Noodle Soup would also be fantastic with it. We make it often and never get tired of it. When there are leftovers, my girls like to eat it for a snack or take it in their lunch boxes.
What this bread is not is dry, gag-you-while-you-chew cardboard like so much cornbread is. The sweetness in it is just the right amount to go with your savory dishes. It truly is the perfect accompaniment.
Have I got you hooked? Yes? You're awesome! Here's the recipe.
