Grandma's Molasses Cornbread

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 25 mins

Sweet corn bread that my grandma used to make, then my father made, and now I make. I serve this with chili, although I do like traditional corn bread too. This just really complements chili.

Wow! This was so easy and so tasty. The molasses gave it a sweet, but not over-powering taste. My husband and I loved it. Thank you!

OH MY GOODNESS! My family loved this recipe! The kids only wanted the cornbread, but had to be persuaded to eat some of the other food as well. Later on (since I happened to make a double batch for company), the kids wanted this cornbread instead of a cookie. I had no arguments there. We all sat around and shared another cornbread muffin, since they're easier for little fingers to hold. THANK YOU for the new recipe request!
