Flavorful and moist Cornbread
Cornbread that is moist, tender and full of flavor

 

LOVE Corn Bread but not the heavy kind that when you eat it you’re afraid to go swimming afterward? No fear with this delight!  It’s a perfect pairing for chili, stew or a substantial soup if you want a side or stretching the budget.

You’ll find my recipe of this corn bread can be served all on it’s own, or with some honey butter that I show you how to make below, or all alone….oh, you’ve got a winner.

It even get’s better after ‘resting’ for a day!  Let’s get some made shall we:)

TO MAKE THE HONEY BUTTER

Ingredients:

1/2 cup REAL salted butter (1 stick) – needs to be softened NOT melted!

1/4 – 1/3 cup of honey; depending on your taste

spray release, optional

Directions:

In a stand up mixer, or a bowl and using a mixer, whip the butter for 2 minutes to make it light and fluffy.

Spray your measuing cup lightly with spray release then pour in the honey and it will just slid right out as you pour!

Measure your honey into the measuring cup and begin pouring into the mixing bowl as it’s going on low to medium speed.
