Fluffy Cornbread

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by viking

This is an old recipe for a slightly sweet corn bread. It can easily be doubled and baked in a 9x13 pan. We substitute applesauce for the shortening for a healthier treat.

My husband and son LOVE cornbread. I've been looking for a good cornbread recipe for a while now...this wasn't too "cake"y but not to coarse either - a good balance, fluffy but still taste like CORNbread. Thank you!
